HP Storeonce LTO-5 emulation

Hi,

We have a HP Storeonce set up as a VTL on the SAN with LTO-5 drives. When we backup to the tape drives we get 1.5TB per tape. Is there a way to enable to the tape media compression?

Thanks
Andrew

The native capacity of LTO-5 is 1.5TB, but why not change media type to LTO-6 with native 2.5TB?

Compression always depends on the data itself. Try to zip a zip-file!


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
