LTO Devices on the HP3000

2.3.4. LTO Drives Supported LTO drives on the HP3000


LTOs will operate on all supported MPE/iX operating systems, but because of throughput limitations are only supported on FW-SCSI interfaces, and only supported with a single unit per FW-SCSI adapter.

LTOs operate in "streaming" mode, which requires a constant flow of data to the unit. Interrupting this unit (for slow I/O or waiting on resources) causes the unit to stop, back up, and reposition itself -- a VERY slow operation. So you REALLY want to ensure that your LTO can be fed a quick stream of data if you're at all interested in a speedy backup operation.
