Hewlett Packard DLT Rackable Drives

Hello,
 I have been reading around and from what I understand you can get two HP 80GB DLT drives to work together in parallel, doubling the backup speed if you put them in a rack. Could someone tell me the part numbers of what I need to do that, so I can get an idea of the price. I immagine the racking component must have some special electronics in it to achieve this. Does anyone have any experience with these kinds of systems?.

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Waltham

What I believe you are talking about is hardware RAID.  Does that sound familiar?

To answer your question though, I would check out the HP site.  There should be info there for everything you want to know about their products.

If we are talking Tape backup DLT, then the software should be able to double the speed by writing to both drives simultaneously. Most backup software packages allow for this, or have an extra module. It is usually NOT a hardware thing. The rack mentioned may simply be an option for saving some space. I have 2 backup libraries here that I use to get faster backups using Backup Exec. Legato also does this.  I hope this answers your question.
