Quantum / IBM LTO4 FH i500 FC Library Drive Refurbished 90 days Warranty
This Quantum branded IBM LTO4 full height fibre channel drive for the i500 and i2000 series of libraries.
The Ultrium 4 full height tape drive is the fourth generation in the LTO Ultrium family and was manufactured by IBM for many vendors including Dell, Tandberg and others for use in libraries, autoloaders and of course as standalone internal and external drives.
The Ultrium 4 offers 800GB native capacity or 1.6TB compressed capacity on a single tape at speeds of up to 120 MBps; 432GB/hour native. Speed matching dynamically matches tape speed to host data transfer rate improving tape cartridge reliability and longevity by preventing shoe-shining and giving an overall performance advantage over similar drives as well as exceptional reliability.
Interface options for the full height Ultrium 4 include 3Gbps SAS as well as Ultra 160 LVD SCSI and fibre. The LTO4 is also read and write compatible with LTO3 media and read only compatible with LTO2 media. This gives excellent backwards compatibility with past generations of the LTO family.
All stock IBM LTO Ultrium drives have been fully refurbished by our factory trained engineers and have passed a series of manufacturer diagnostic tests designed to test the read write performance of the LTO drive.
