Model Details

The quad density DST 314 tape drive is the building block of Ampex’s newest 19-mm mass storage product family.
Breakthrough performance in data transfer rates and cartridge capacities make DST products the benchmark in mass data storage.

The Ampex quad density DST 314 tape drive is the industry’s
largest capacity, highest performing, commercially available data
tape drive. The smart DD-2 tape format enables volume tape
partitioning and fast search speeds and allows cartridges to be loaded
and unloaded at multiple locations along the tape, eliminating
lengthy rewind and reducing access time to data. The Ampex DST
314 drive is perfect for a variety of applications including data
acquisition, unattended backup and restore, disaster recovery,
storing video and images, and data interchange. The DST tape
system’s virtual disk performance allows users to expand storage
capacity, enjoy performance that rivals disk drives and realize the
cost efficiencies associated with tape systems.
Available in both table top and rack mount configurations, the
DST 314 drive can dramatically reduce the number of cartridges
required for mass data storage, thereby saving on media costs, while
simplifying handling, human intervention and cataloguing. The large
storage capacities provided by DST drives also eliminate the need
for data compression, and when coupled with high speed data
transfer rates, eliminate the need to stream data to multiple tape
drives which utilize lower capacity cartridges to achieve
performance. As a result, DST storage products provide users with
unsurpassed data access and improved data reliability.
Ampex works with leading software companies to provide backup
and recovery, archiving and HSM applications for the DST 314 tape
