Quantum LTO-8 Tape Drive
Quantum's LTO stand-alone 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 off-site for disaster recovery or long-term archiving. Quantum's LTO tape drives are WORM capable, allowing companies from healthcare, financial, and other related industries to meet tough regulatory requirements. LTO technology offers backward read and writes capability, providing an archive tape recovery solution with newer-generation drives.
Linear Tape File System (LTFS) software allows customers to simply drag and drop files to Quantum LTO tape drives as they would to a hard drive. This eliminates the need for backup software and allows the information written on 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, and long-term archiving, among others-where removing the dependence on a proprietary format is important. LTFS is compatible with Windows, Linux, and Apple Mac operating systems.
20x More Storage
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.
