The next Generation in Ultrium format
LTO-6 joins its portfolio of LTO tape cartridges, libraries, and drives as a
part of its tiered storage solutions that enable organizations - from small
businesses through large enterprise data centers - to deal with increasing
amounts of data that require large capacity, offline backup and archiving.
With a faster compressed tape drive transfer rate of
up to 400MB/s and increased maximum storage capacity of up to 6.25TB assuming
2.5:1 data compression, LTO-6 cartridges address the need of IT professionals
seeking cost- and energy-efficient, reliable media for data archival and backup
The LTO-6 technology features increased capacity (6.25 TB) and
faster transfer rates (400MB/s). LTO-6 tape cartridges are available and can be
used within any drive or system built for LTO-6 technology.
LTO-6 features WORM functionality and
advanced encryption capabilities, making it suited for backup and archival
applications requiring high security, such as legal and medical records, and
financial data that must comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
It also incorporates
LTFS, which allows LTO-6 to be used in a manner similar to that of HDDs. Because
LTO-6 is a tape technology, it has inherent advantages compared to HDD,
including lowering energy consumption and reducing storage media costs.
