required hardware to connect and install LTO 7 tape library with HP Proliant DL 180 G9 Server

Hi

i have bought HP Proliant DL 180 G9 Server  [P.N: 784108-425 ] and ships with its basic configuration no HDD no DVD ..etc

i have been tasked to use this server as a primary backup server for our data center using single LTO7 drive

my question is what are the nessary requirements like [riser cards , SAS cards SAS cables lto7 drives ..etc ] to connect the LTO7 to this server ?

Or at least where can i find them on the HP website ?

kind regards

S

Hello,

search for the following components:

HPE H241 Smart Host Bus Adapter, HPE StoreEver LTO Ultrium Tape Drives or HPE StoreEver Rack-mount Kits.

Be carefull with the SAS cables. H241 has a HD mini SAS connector and the LTO drives have only mini SAS connectors. 

You need one of the following cables to connect the H241 Adapter to the LTO drive:

HP 0.5m External Mini SAS High Density to Mini SAS Cable 691971-B21

HP 1.0m External Mini SAS High Density to Mini SAS Cable 716189-B21

HP 2.0m External Mini SAS High Density to Mini SAS Cable 716191-B21

HP 4.0m External Mini SAS High Density to Mini SAS Cable 716193-B21

HP 6.0m External Mini SAS High Density to Mini SAS Cable 733045-B21
