Tested to extremes for trouble-free operation with your HP SureStore DAT drives
- Testing confirms that HP DDS cartridges can withstand at least 2,000 passes. Provides more than 100 full backups from each data cartridge. Each cleaning cartridge lasts for 50 cleaning cycles. These HP standards exceed the industry benchmarks which qualify manufacturers to use the DDS logo. (Read about HP's testing program in the white paper Tested to Extremes and read DDS Specifications to find out more about HP's rigorous standards.
- Climatic tests to evaluate media performance in both volatile and constant environments. The everyday exchange of media in and out of drives, and its movement from 1 place to another, demand robust data storage can tolerate frequent handling and withstand sudden changes in climatic conditions. Also, ambient and dynamic tests evaluated media performance in normal office conditions, including its reaction to vibration and shock.
- To ensure optimum performance, always use cartridges that match your drive's format. For HP DDS-1 drives, such as the HP SureStore Tape 5000, use only DDS-1 cartridges (4GB capacity, 90-meter, or 2.6GB capacity, 60-meter).
- HP DAT drives are backward compatible. For example, that a DDS-3 drive can read from and write to DDS-1 and DDS-2 tape cartridges. They are not, however, forward compatible — a DDS-1 drive cannot use a DDS-2 cartridge.
