BDT Implements LTO-6 Tape Automation

BDT Media Automation implements the new tape standard LTO-6 in its storage devices to increase capacity as well as write and read speeds of tapes. With this offer BDT meets the market requirements in regards of increasing data volumes.

"We see additional growth potential in the area of high volume data storage", explains Rolf Ritter, CEO of BDT and complements: "Thanks to our longstanding experience and cooperation with the IT industry we are able to recognize trends at an early stage and to offer innovative developments."

It is estimated that the worldwide amount of data will double every second year.

The large IT companies launch every two to three years a new standard in tape storage on the market together with developers such as BDT. With each market launch the capacity of tapes and the data transfer rate doubles or grows at least by 50%. As OEM developer BDT sells corresponding data storage systems to nearly all leading IT companies that on the other hand offer this technology under their own brand and name as long-term data protection and archiving solution.

"Tape remains one of the most reasonable and reliable solutions for long-term storage of data", explains Ritter.

The tape technology is used by all large IT manufacturers. New developments in this area will be certified by an international consortium BDT takes part of.

"This ensures a long-term and direct market access for us", complements Ritter.

The introduction of a new tape format for archiving and storage of data sees BDT as additional growth potential. The so called LTFS format enables it to directly connect a tape drive with an OS. Users can store data via drag & drop to tape media for the first time.

"With the increase in capacity and performance of LTO-6 and the simplification of the usability and operability of LTFS the importance of tape grows for long-term data protection", emphasizes Ritter and complements: "The LTFS technology will open op completely new application possibilities and products we already develop today. Low costs, higher data security as well as energy efficiency are only some of the advantages."
