LTO-8 Availability Alert | LTO-8 Media Shortage

There is a current supply shortage of LTO-8 media in the United States. The LTO consortium members (Quantum, IBM and HPE), are working closely with LTO media manufacturers to resolve the issue as quickly as possible, but we do not have a resolution date yet.

In the interim, you have two options/alternatives for use in your LTO-8 Devices.

  • LTO-7:    Media has an uncompressed storage capacity of 6TB and a compressed capacity of up to 15TB.
  • LTO-7 Type M:    media is a new LTO-7 tape with an "M8" label—when initialized it can hold up to 9TB native capacity. Representing the lowest cost per TB option available for use with LTO-8 drives, it's the best alternative for your customers.*

* Note: LTO-7 Type M is only compatible on LTO-8 Tape Libraries, and not standalone drives.  In addition, You will not be able to read LTO-7 Type M media in future generation Drives - LTO-9, LTO-10 etc.....

Contact your BackupWorks.com Account Rep at 866 801 2944 for all your LTO-8 needs.


Update (August 2019): The LTO Consortium (HPE, IBM and Quantum Corp) have announced that FujiFilm and Sony are now both Licensees of Generation 8 Technology and LTO-8 media will be available in the coming weeks.  Please contact your BackupWorks Rep at 866 801 2944 and book your LTO-8 Tape Media orders.  We expect to be shipping product in the September timeframe and are taking orders on a first come first servered basis.
