Notes to editors
As an affordable backend tape storage and second-tier storage enhancement of the FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CS Data Protection Appliances, ETERNUS LT tape storage systems can be attached to the ETERNUS CS with the following requirements:
- ETERNUS CS200c with option: tape attachment
- ETERNUS CS800 with Veritas OST interface
- ETERNUS CS8000
Compared to the previous LTO generations
|Example: Maximum compressed capacity of ETERNUS LT family
|ETERNUS LT20 S2
|ETERNUS LT40 S2
|ETERNUS LT60 S2
Using LTO-7 technology reduces the backup time to 79% resp. 47% compared? to using LTO-4 / LTO-6 tape technology
3 All ETERNUS LT systems encrypt the backup data autonomously with hardware encryption through the LTO tape drive providing enhanced security and compliance. Normally the backup software generates and manages the encryption keys for tape libraries, however this encryption key management option via the ETERNUS LT260 tape library sets a single ‘master key’ for each tape library. Once data is ordered for backup by the backup server, the tape library automatically creates an encryption key and provides it to the target tape cartridge. Master keys are provided to each logical library. Encrypted/unencrypted settings can be selected for each tape cartridge and each logical library via the central ETERNUS LT260 user interface. This feature requires a separate key management license for the ETERNUS LT260.
4 To fulfill extended compliance regulations when storing data to tape, a Write Once, Read Many (WORM) storage method may be used to store data in a non-erasable, non-rewritable format. This is intended to assist in supporting the long-term retention of data and to meet the requirements of many regulatory bodies worldwide. The LTO tape drives used in the ETERNUS LT family are WORM-ready. A specially formatted WORM tape cartridge is required.
