mLogic mTape LTO Ultrium Thunderbolt

mTape Thunderbolt revolutionizes LTO, enabling users to easily connect LTO-8 technology to portable, desktop and all-in-one computers that feature Thunderbolt connectivity.  Dead simple.  Another mLogic first.

LTO tape offers a shelf-life of 30+ years and a reliability level that exceeds what is achievable with spinning disk and solid state drive technology.  mTape is the ultimate archiving solution to safeguard important digital media for the long term.  And LTO tape is not only more reliable than disk, but much more cost effective.
