Therefore, the IT managers have to ensure robust data security and also in-time data availability. LTO 5 tape, the latest version of breakthrough LTO (Linear Tape Open) format, is the optimal solution for the stringent demands of data-rich companies. As LTO is an open tape format, a number of companies including Imation, Maxell, Dell, HP, Verbatim, Fuji, Sony and Quantum are offering LTO ultrium tape products. This not only has enhanced the media choice, but the customers are provided high-quality LTO devices at competitive prices. The LTO5 is the first generation which offers native as well as compressed capacity in terabytes. The previous LTO4 generation achieved 1.6TB capacity in compressed mode. 1.5 TB native and 3TB compressed information can be squeezed onto LTO ultrium 5 cartridge. This remarkable increase in recording capacity will help to reduce the data set required for copying huge volumes of data. LTO5 technology facilitates the I.T staff to conveniently manage the data with greater efficiency and reliability. HP LTO5 tape is a market leading solution that supports a variety of complex data centers, enterprise class applications, medium sized organizations, management information systems, popular servers, business enterprises and busy data centers. The robust data protection features of previous LTO generations including data encryption and WORM have been incorporated in LTO ultrium 5 format. Furthermore, a superior “dual media partitioning” system features in LTO5 technology that simplifies storage and management of large databases. LTO4 drives are 15% slower than LTO 5 drives. Uncompressed speed offered by LTO5 drive is 140 MB/s, and that of LTO4 drive is 120 MB/s. So the LTO5 customers can quickly and efficiently manage the exploding data volumes with superior reliability. The LTO5 tape drive connects you to the previous two generations, reaching up to LTO3 tape. The LTO4 cartridges are fully compatible, whereas the LTO3 tapes are read compatible. LTO 3 backup tapes have been developed by the industry-leading companies. LTFS (Linear Tape File System) is another powerful technology that allows the customers to use the LTO ultrium5 tape system just like a traditional USB flash drive. You can copy-paste the data from your drive to the LTO5 tape and vice versa. What’s more, the users can also drag-drop the data files. That means the LTO ultrium 5 technology not only provides you massive storage capacity, fast backup speed, and superior data security, but also the flexibility and convenience to deal with the large databases at a reasonable cost.
