C1539-00114 HP DDS2 4-8GB DAT Drive

HP DDS2 4-8GB DAT Drive Refurbished 6 Months Warranty

The C1539-00114 is the HP version of the DDS2 4/8GB internal DAT drive featuring the SCSI interface.

The DDS / DAT (Digital Data Storage / Digital Audio Tape) format was initially developed by a collaboration between HP, Sony and Digital in 1991 and uses helical scanning for recording, the same process used by a video cassette recorder (VCR). If errors are present, the write heads rewrite the data.
DDS2 DAT tapes have a width of 3.81mm, known as 4mm, to give a compressed capacity of up to 8GB.
The HP DAT8 half height tape drive is the second generation in the DDS family and was manufactured by HP for vendors including Sun and IBM, for use as standalone internal and external drives targetting the small business market.
The DAT8 offers 4GB native capacity or 8GB compressed capacity on a single tape at transfer speeds of up to 1MBps or 3.6GB per hour. Native, the drive provides 4GB of storage capacity with a transfer speed of 510KBps
The DAT8 drive employs the same technology as previous DAT products, and uses DAT8 media in order to achieve higher capacities. However, it maintains backward compatibility and can still read and write data to both 60M and 90M DDS1 4mm tapes.
The HP DAT family offers HPs unique One-Button-Disaster-Recovery (OBDR) feature providing customers with the ability to restore their systems with the touch of a single button.
The DAT8 was only available in a 50pin narrow SCSI2 LVD/SE interface version.
