Quantum's LTO-7 tape drives deliver reliable data protection with tremendous capacity and performance at an affordable price. In addition, they use less power than LTO-6 drives, making a "greener" and more energy efficient solution.

  • Fast backup and restore performance - at speeds up to 750MB/s (2.7TB/hr)
  • Protect 15TB of data on each cartridge
  • Drag and drop files in native format directly to LTO media using LTFS, no backup software needed
  • Secure protection with AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption
  • WORM (write once, read many) functionality
  • Partitioning capability
  • Two generations of backward read compatibility

The LTO-7 drive uses the latest industry-standard interface—6Gb/sec Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)—to allow for easy installation and integration into your data center. Quantum's LTO-7 tape drives also protect your investment by providing two generations backward read and write compatibility and one generation backward read compatibility.

Keep data secure while not impacting back up or restore performance with hardware-based AES 256-bit data encryption. In addition, LTO-7 is WORM capable allowing companies from healthcare, financial, and other related industries to meet tough regulatory requirements.

Quantum "Backup Ready" kit solutions allow you to go from box-to-backup in minutes with the highly reliable Quantum LTO tape drive, cable for external models, a cleaning cartridge, and durable Quantum media. "Backup Ready" solutions are cost-effective, easy to install, and fully supported by Quantum. Choose the Quantum LTO-7 tape drive configuration that is right for your environment: a server-installable internal, convenient tabletop, or space-efficient rack mount.
