As your long-term data storage grows, so does your need for a dependable and efficient way to keep it protected. Based on the world's fastest-growing tape technology, Quantum's LTO tape drives work seamlessly with scalar tape libraries and automatically match the tape drive speed to that of the host, optimizing performance and increasing reliability. Plus, Quantum's LTO tape drives are easy to deploy and upgrade - perfect for small, midsized, and corporate storage environments. LTO-5 is the ideal solution for archive and long-term data retention due to its industry leading capacity, fast throughput rates, and security features.
Quantum’s LTO-5 Full Height (FH) and Half Height (HH) tape drives deliver tremendous capacity and performance at an affordable price. In addition, they use less power on average than LTO-4 drives, making a “greener” and more energy efficient solution.
The drive uses the latest industry-standard interface—6 Gb/sec Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)—to allow for easy installation and integration into your data center. Quantum’s LTO-5 FH/HH tape drives also protect your investment by providing backward read and write compatibility with LTO-4 media and backward read compatibility with LTO-3 media.
And with Quantum’s LTO-5 drives, you can be assured of security with hardware-based AES 256-bit data encryption, allowing for the highest level of security without any loss of performance during the encryption process. In addition, LTO-5 is WORM capable when used with LTO WORM data cartridges. And the new partitioning functionality enables the tape to be formatted so it can be treated like a hard disk – perfect for video, imaging, CAD/CAM and other large file applications.
