LTO 8 tape for high capacity backup requirements

An LTO 8 tape provides 12TB’s of native capacity, 30TB compressed at a transfer rate of 360MB/s native and 900MB/s compressed. LTO 8 tape is ideal for large systems backups or suitable for archival purposes and provides peace of mind from the world’s largest manufacturer of LTO tape media.

Designed for organisations that need to store massive amounts of information at the lowest cost per GB, the new media provides AES 256-bit encryption and has a 1019 bit error rate so an improvement in data reliability.

LTO 8 also continues support for LTFS that allows LTO tapes to be seen as a very large USB drive!

LTO 8 Drives will be able to format new, new and unused LTO 7 tapes as Type M-8 media. This will allow the use of LTO 7 tapes in the LTO 8 Drive and increase the normal capacity of an LTO 7 tape by 50%, up to 22.5TB.

The drives are also backwards read/write compatible with LTO-7 so buying an LTO 8 drive will enable you to use LTO 7 tapes.

All LTO media has a lifetime guarantee against defects. If for any reason your LTO 8 tape becomes defective we will send out a replacement. In addition to this if the media fault leads to data loss and it has been kept in the correct environmental conditions and used correctly Fuji Film also provides a tape data recovery service.

For organisations that require LTO in their tape libraries, we can now provide these with either a new library or upgrade to your existing library, call us for details.

If purchasing 20 or more pieces of  LTO 8 tapes we can provide you with printed barcodes for use in your LTO tape library that have the correct barcode sequence.
