Tandberg Data Announce Availability of LTO-6 Tape Drives, Tape Automation and LTO-6 media.

The new LTO-6 tape solutions provide increased capacity, performance and functionality for SMBs looking to better manage data growth and reduce storage costs.

Offering twice the cartridge capacity as the previous generation, the new LTO-6 tape drive delivers up to 6.25TB of compressed cartridge capacity and speeds of up to 1.4TB per hour, simplifying data protection and archiving operations (based on a 2.5:1 compression ratio).

With LTO-6, the StorageLoader is offering up to 50TB, the StorageLibrary T24 up to 150TB and the StorageLibrary T40+ up to 250TB of compressed storage.

As with previous generations of LTO technology, the new LTO-6 tape products are backwards write/read compatible for one generation and backwards read compatible for two generations.

All LTO-6 tape products will support 256-bit AES hardware encryption and WORM for regulatory compliance.

LTO-6 tape drives will support LTFS technology with up to two partitions on a single data cartridge, allowing users to store different file types in different locations on tape to reduce access times.

The LTO-6 tape drive is available with a SAS or FC interface and is offered in standalone or automation configurations.

LTO-6 Tape Automation Saves Time and Money
The StorageLoader and StorageLibrary Series with LTO-6 allow customers to shorten backup windows, simplify storage management, advance data protection, improve compliance and reduce storage costs through active archiving.

  • The StorageLoader is a compact tape autoloader offering eight slots and up to 50TB of compressed storage.

Pass-Thru feature allows up to five units to be stacked together, increasing the number of slots from 40 to 77, 114, 151 or 188 slots. Pass-Thru feature provides customers with capacity-on-demand and performance-on-demand. Customers can add additional drives and capacity when required, allowing StorageLibrary T40+ capacity to be increased up to 1.2PB and performance up to 28.8TB per hour.
