HP C5717a 4mm Tape Drive

The reliability and convenience of HP’s SureStore DAT Autoloader solutions deliver a number of key benefits over single-drive products for managers of small and medium-sized networks. HP SureStore DAT Autoloaders substantially reduce the number of administrative tasks, and therefore the risk of error, in the backup process.

With their six-cartridge capacity, there is a cartridge for every day Monday – Friday, plus a slot dedicated for a cleaning cartridge. Backup is reduced to the once-a-week task of changing the magazine.
