The 46X1290 provides up to 1.5TB of physical storage (3TB with 2:1 compression). Data that is encrypted by LTO Ultrium 5 drivers can be stored on this media to securely maintain data integrity. The dual-partition capability is designed to enhance the performance of time-encoding applications. This unit is ideal for use in data centers, and designed for long data retention and archiving with no power required while at rest.
