LTO: Advantages using Full height drives
Posted on 2014-03-17
I need to extend my LTO Library with another LTO5 drive. I already have an FH Drive installed and room for another FH or two HH drives. I would prefer HH over FH because of this.
I once read HH drives are generally slower than FH, but cannot see the difference when comparing the specs.
The drives in question are Tandberg Data, item numbers:
I have no way of knowing what the actual brand of the drive is; but I highly suspect HP drives (suggesting from the firmware updates Tandberg provides).
So. what are the advantages of FH over HH?
