MagStor Thunderbolt 3 LTO-8 Tape Drive Compatible With Apple M1 Processor

With YoYotta software that produces LTFS

MagStor Inc. announced its Thunderbolt 3 LTO-8 tape drive with Apple, Inc.‘s M1 silicon compatibility.

Firm’s LTO tape drives are compatible with Apple’s M1 chip.

When the story broke that Apple would be introducing the M1 Apple silicon chip as a replacement for their Intel processors, Columbus-based LTO tape drive manufacturer rushed to ensure its products would be able to operate with this CPU. It learned from their SAS-card manufacturers that there had been issues when the Thunderbolt 3 ports were added after they received their initial beta drive. With the knowledge that drivers were not functioning with M1 out of the gate, the company worked to secure the first device with Apple silicon they could get their hands on.

As a company committed to customer service and support, the firm has worked to stay aware of the latest developments in the technology world. It was already previously the first LTO tape drive in the world to be Thunderbolt 3 certified. After hearing that Mac users were no longer able to run 32-bit programs, it knew they needed to be prepared to find solutions to possible changes in software architecture.

Once the firm had established compatibility between the company’s LTO tape drives and the M1 chip, it connected with a collaborator at YoYotta, a company that produces LTFS software for the firm’s LTO tape drives. The firm helped YoYotta secure their own system with an M1 chip and to assure YoYotta functioned with the M1. As a result, all drives sold by the company, including the Thunderbolt 3 LTO-8 drive, as well as YoYotta’s software, are verified to function with M1.
