Tandberg SDLT600 300 / 600 GB  36/72 Mb per sec transfer rate

Taking Capacity and Performance to New Heights
The next generation of the Super DLT drives demonstrates previously unknown capacities and unbeatable performance. The Tandberg SDLT600 as the latest member of the Tandberg DLT family will be twice as fast and have almost twice the capacity of the SDLT320.

The new Best in Class Product: SDLT600
As the new flagship of the SuperDLT line Tandberg introduces the SDLT600. With itīs transfer rate of more than 250* GByte per hour and a capacity of 600* GByte per cartridge this drives sets new records for the whole tape drive market. There are upgrade paths to the SDLT600 available from most DLT products.

The SDLT 600 is based on the technology platform that more companies trust to protect their business critical information assets than any other: DLTtape.

It is of course able to read the SDLT tapeTM I cartridges recorded with a SDLT220 or SDLT320 and is moreover the first Superdrive being able to read the DLTtape VS1 written by the DLT VS160 drive. A change from the VS product to the SDLT600 is therefore possible without large investments.

The SDLT600 with its transfer rate of 72 MByte of compressed data per second is a real performance marvel, it allows you to backup more than 250 GByte of compressed data in just one hour. To store the now available huge capacities there is also a new cartridge introduced: The Tandberg SDLTtapeTM II media. The combination of drive and cartridge out of one hand will provide extra reliability, quality and compatibility.

The free software tool DLTSage is available for all SuperDLT drives. With this application you will have the total control of your media and drives as well as of our backup quality and reliability. Use DLTSage for error prevention, diagnostics and inventory.

Available in internal and tabletop versions, the SDLT 600 combines the best of proven optical and magnetic technologies to offer users remarkable improvements in capacity and performance. Super DLTtape's laser-guided optical servo brings the capability of optical tracking technology to tape for the first time, while an advanced Partial Response Maximum Likelihood (PRML) read channel leverages proven disk drive technology to bring new levels of performance and data integrity.

DLTtape systems are recognized worldwide as the industry standard, assuring end users of reliable, high performance tape storage solutions and long-term investment protection. Like its predecessors, the SDLT 600 is fully compatible with the world's leading server brands, operating systems and backup software. And users can count on Super DLTtape to grow with their storage needs, with a four-generation roadmap that offers a clearly defined growth path to over 1 terabyte on a single cartridge.
