Overview:

As your long-term data storage grows, so does your need for a dependable and efficient way to keep it protected. Based on the world's leading tape technology, Quantum's LTO tape drives work seamlessly with Scalar® tape libraries and automatically match the tape drive speed to that of the host, optimizing performance and increasing reliability. Plus, Quantum's LTO Tape Drives are easy to deploy and upgrade - perfect for small, midsized, and corporate storage environments.

Quantum’s LTO-7, LTO-6, and LTO-5 standalone drives deliver a simple, affordable, all-in-one data protection solution that customers can depend on. Many companies can store all their data on a single cartridge, thanks to the tremendous capacity LTO technology provides. In addition, companies can keep this data secure using AES 256-bit encryption as tapes are transported offsite for disaster recovery or long-term archiving. LTO-7, LTO-6, and LTO-5 drives are WORM capable, allowing companies from healthcare, financial, and other related industries to meet tough regulatory requirements. LTO continues to offer two generations of backward read and one generation of backward write capability, providing an archive tape recovery solution with newer generation drives.

New functionality allows customers to simply drag and drop files to LTO-7, LTO-6, and LTO-5 as they would a hard drive using Linear Tape File System (LTFS) software. This eliminates the need for backup software and allows the information written to tape to be exchanged easily between different users, operating systems, and software. This is highly beneficial for many applications including media and entertainment, video and imaging, longterm archiving, and other applications where removing the dependence on a proprietary format is important. LTFS is compatible with Windows, Linux, and Apple Macintosh.

Quantum tape drives now include DATASTOR Shield™ backup software with deduplication to supercharge your backup. Quantum and DATASTOR have teamed up to provide the first backup with deduplication straight to tape. This technology, which reduces backups significantly (up to 20X), allows you to store more data per tape than competitive models.
