Product Description

Quantum TC-L42AN-EZ Internal 3GB/s SAS HBA Bundle LTO Ultrium 4 HH Tape Drive - Black

Quantum's LTO-4 HH tape drive is a half-height tape drive that offers the same performance and reliability as competitors' full-height LTO-4 tape drives. At the same time, Quantum's LTO-4 HH is the smart choice for those looking to reduce power consumption and cooling costs in the data center because it uses up to 46% less power when idle than the competition and up to 26% less power in stand-by mode . In addition, it uses less power when reading and writing than LTO-3, while being 50% faster. The drive has a native transfer rate of 120 MB/sec and native capacity of up to 800GB. Its simple space saving half-height form factor uses the latest industry standard interface -- Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)-- to allow for easy installation and integration into your datacenter, while providing the same performance as competitors' full-height LTO-4 drives. Quantum's LTO-4 HH tape drives also protect your investment by providing backward read and write compatibility with LTO-3 media and backward read compatibility with LTO-2 media. And with Quantum's LTO-4 HH drives, security is now at its highest level as drives feature AES 256-bit data encryption. Encryption on LTO-4HH tape drives is hardware based, allowing for the highest level of security without any loss of performance during the encryption process. In addition, LTO-4 HH is WORM capable when used with LTO WORM data cartridges.

Quantum "Backup Ready" certified solutions allow you to go from box-to-backup in minutes with the highly reliable Quantum LTO-4 HH tape drive, world-class Backup Exec? QuickStart software and durable Quantum media. "Backup Ready" solutions are cost-effective, easy to install and fully-supported by Quantum.

Media Compatibility

Quantum LTO-4 HH tape drives write to the following media:
LTO Ultrium 4 (MR-L4MQN-01), LTO Ultrium 3 (MR-L3MQN-01)

Quantum LTO-4 HH tape drives read the following media:
LTO Ultrium 4 (MR-L4MQN-01), LTO Ultrium 3 (MR-L3MQN-01), LTO Ultrium 2 (MR-L2MQN-01)

Quantum LTO-4 HH tape drives utilize the following cleaning cartridge:
LTO Universal (MR-LUCQN-01)



  • SmartVerify™ virtually eliminates the need for a traditional verify pass during backup, reducing the backup window and increasing data integrity
  • FastSense™ monitors the speed of incoming data and matches the speed at which the drive streams data more effectively than the competitors' LTO drives.FastSense variable speed matching for Quantum's LTO-4 HH drive is better than competitor's full-height or half-height drives in a number of ways:
    • Matches tape drive write speed to speed of incoming data more effectively than other manufacturers LTO drives
    • Faster backups, writes at optimal speed, and repositions less (shoe-shining)
    • Energy and Cost Efficient versus full-height LTO-4 drives because backups complete faster with less shoe shining
    • Competitive drives can waste time and power by:
      • Writing at speeds that are too slow, therefore taking longer to complete a backup
      • Writing too fast, depleting the buffer and causing time consuming, power hungry reposition events
    • Dynamic PowerDown™ protects the tape drive and data cartridge during unexpected power loss
