Don’t expect any major improvements to performance as the DAT72 was, and still is, hp storageworks dat 72 only tape drive we’ve seen to introduce a new generation but not offer a worthwhile performance boost. HP StorageWorks Ultrium The performance tests verified this with ARCserve reporting a modest 3.

Too slow for server backup and we wouldn’t recommend investing in this format until the next generation is sforageworks.
