LTO-5 and LTO-6 Media Partitioning & Linear Tape File System (LTFS) Highlights

The Linear Tape File System (LTFS) is the first file system that works in conjunction with LTO tape technology to set a new standard for ease of use and portability for open systems tape storage. With this system, accessing data stored on an LTO Ultrium tape cartridge is as easy and intuitive as using a USB flash drive. And with the operating system's graphical file manager and directory tree, utilizing data on an LTO Ultrium tape cartridge is as easy as dragging and dropping.

LTO-5 and LTO-6 specifications enable the capability for two media partitions which can be independently accessed to help provide faster data access and improved data management.

With LTFS, one partition holds the content and the other holds the content’s index; the tape can be self-describing to improve archive management.

Enables capabilities that manage files directly on tape allowing for easy sharing of the tape cartridge across platforms.

Makes viewing and accessing tape files easier than ever before. Explore tape content with directory tree structures and drag and drop files to and from the tape.

Can be used in production, post production and archive of digital video assets.

Addresses the growing needs of a variety of marketplace segments with rich media such as Media and Entertainment, Medical, Digital Surveillance, Seismic Exploration, Government, Cloud and more!
