As your data grows you can maintain or reduce your existing footprint with Addition Int industry-leading storage density and LTO-7’s greater storage capacity. The additional capacity offered by LTO-7, now up to 6.4 TB uncompressed, means that incredible density lets you maximise the amount of data that can be stored per square foot of expensive data center real estate and co location offerings.
LTO-7’s enhanced data rate, now up to 315 MB/sec, provides a performance increase up to 97% when compared to LTO-6. This performance boost translates into the need for less tape drives to do the same amount of work.
LTO-7 tape drive technology increases the tape head channel count from 16 to 32, respectively. This increase in the number of channels provides a much higher data rate, a time reduction of approximately 50% to read or write a full tape, and reduced head wear means a longer lasting tape drive. In other words LTO-7 translates into higher reliability and better ROI for you.
LTO tape technology is the only open, non-proprietary tape technology. Interchangeability of tape media and drives is guaranteed from all LTO manufacturers to allow freedom of choice for end users. With LTO technology you will experience the lowest cost, most energy efficient tape technology with ongoing advancements driven by high volume and competition.
Commitment to tape by the LTO Consortium is underpinned by a recently updated LTO roadmap which now extends to a tenth generation of drives and media. Additionally, backwards compatibility to LTO-5 offers seamless migration and consolidation of data to higher capacity, better performance LTO-7 tape technology.
