Get Archiving with YoYotta LTFS
Create cross platform LTFS archives using LTO-8, LTO-7, LTO-6 or LTO-5 tapes.
YoYotta LTFS controls one or two standalone LTO tape drives.
Linear Tape File System is a standard format for writing files to tape. It's ideal for storing production and post media as the LTO tapes can be mounted and read on Linux, macOS and Windows. You aren't locked into a proprietary archive.
YoYotta LTFS includes all the features of YoYotta and adds the ability to create archives in parallel to two standalone LTO drives using LTFS.
Quickly create industry standard archives on LTO-8, LTO-7, LTO-6 or LTO-5 tapes. YoYotta names, formats, mounts and repairs tape archives. During the archive YoYotta calculates both MD5 and xxHash checksums and then automatically uses these to read back and verify every file.
YoYotta remembers the contents of every tape created so later on you can search to find the location of shots.
LTFS does allow access from the desktop, but it is not the fastest way to read and write.
Remember that LTFS is a tape that cannot be accessed in parallel.
YoYotta has a smart queue, so multiple copies to tape can be started and they will be processed in order.
