The two most exciting LTO tape news this year is the launch and availability of LTO-6 which is able to read/write LTO-5 tapes and read LTO-4 tapes, allied to a native tape capacity of 2.5TB's and a transfer rate approaching 400MB/s. The other news is the continued development of LTFS (Linear Tape File System) first launched with LTO-5 and enhanced with LTO-6, makes the copying and distribution of LTO tapes easy and simple using the GUI available for Windows, Linux and MAC.
Many people wrote off LTO tape some years ago but it still continues to provide the lowest cost per GB and is far more rugged than a USB hard drive. The LTO tape roadmap stretches to 8 generations and in labs around the world it is possible to store 32TB's on a single LTO tape! So whilst LTO has had some bad press it still has a place to play in the backup market and allied to a fast high capacity disk solution make it a very viable and afforable solution.
