Why organisations need LTO7 Ultrium Tape Technology today
With speeds of up to 750MB/second, the transfer rates on LTO7 are impressively fast - more than double that of previous generations of LTO tapes.
Fuji LTO7 tape media features Fujifilm’s proprietary Barium Ferrite (BaFe) tape coating technology, developed specifically for long-term archival storage. BaFe tape coating also enables massive enterprise-class storage capacities of up to 15TB per tape. This equates to 2.4 times the capacity of LTO-6 and 4 times the capacity of LTO-5.
LTO7 Ultrium technology also utilises the free download of LTFS software for enhanced data storage benefits.
The use of LTO7 Ultrium Data Tapes, with higher density storage, reduces warehouse and office storage needs and frees up valuable rackspace. This reduction of space will save the operator cost and expense in storing tapes for archive and back-up.
The faster technology of Fuji LTO7 Ultrium enables faster back-up & recovery, dramatically reducing back-up windows. Data transfer tasks will cease to be barriers, as they currently are with older generations of LTO.
LTO7 Ultrium drives are backwards compatible for LTO6 and LTO5 read facility - and able to read and write LTO6 Tapes.
