HP Ultrium 960 Performance (ltt)

How's this possible? 400MB/s?? This was "driveperf" test bypassing Storage.

Re: HP Ultrium 960 Performance (ltt)

The native performance for an Ultrium960 is about 80MB/sec. If the data you are using is compressable - you can multiply this speed by the compression ratio. This would imply your data has a compression ratio of 5:1.

However, there are limiting factors such as the speed of the connecting bus - it looks like a fibrechannel connection to the tape - what is the link speed - 4GB???. It would be useful to know what hardware is in place.
