roadmap is now specified out to a sixth generation with a native capacity of 3.
As with previous generations, LTO
-6 drives will provide backward compatibility with the ability to read and write LTO
generation 5 cartridges and read LTO
generation 4 cartridges, helping to preserve media investments and ease implementation.
open specifications, announced in November 1997 by Seagate, Hewlett-Packard and IBM, addresses a set of common tape storage needs demanded in the marketplace.
We're excited to see Exabyte help provide excellent data protection by developing this LTO
automation backup tape solution for Mac OS X Server.
In addition, the LTO
Ultrium generation 6 format includes the partitioning functionality, enabling users to present a tape-based file system with the use of LTFS.
tape technology has captured a significant share of the enterprise market, we believe the Tandberg LTO
-2 half-height drive will provide an entry into LTO
technology for the small to medium business.
In fact, for Super DLT 600 and LTO
Ultrium 3 owners, deploying WORM storage is effectively free.
The TPCs continue to drive tape standards forward with development of new generations of LTO
Ultrium technology delivering significant innovations in capacity and performance while maintaining vendor interchange and backward compatibility for long-term investment protection.
Improving drive and media reliability and durability is just part of the overall platform improvements that make SDLT and LTO
Ultrium so well positioned to handle the demands of SAN-based backup and archiving.
Plans for LTO
Ultrium 6 drive specifications include backwards-compatible read-and-write capability with LTO
Ultrium 5 cartridges, and backwards-compatible read capabilities with LTO
Ultrium 4 cartridges, helping to protect investments and ease implementation.
Advanced Digital Information Corporation (Nasdaq:ADIC), a supplier of storage solutions to the open system market, announced recently that the company is helping IT departments keep up with increasing data protection demands by doubling the capacity and throughput of its industry-leading line of LTO
automated tape libraries.
Technology incorporates all of the best recording techniques such as advanced head and servo technology, serpentine recording, and a Cartridge Memory (CM) chip imbedded in the cartridge to store pertinent tape information.
