For Great Deals on LTO Tape Autoloader Systems

Why do we need an LTO tape autoloader?

As businesses generate increasing amounts of data and store it both locally and in the cloud, there is a growing concern for protecting it from malware attack, ransomware, and other malicious attacks. To address these concerns, a LTO tape autoloader is essential, especially for smaller data centres. Tape storage is an ideal backup and archive medium that can meet all the retention, protection, and compliance requirements, and it is also economical, portable, and provides air-gapped protection against ransomware.

By utilising tape storage and a 1U or 2U rack-mounted automated tape system, businesses can easily manage backups and long-term data protection. A tape autoloader is simple to install and operate, requiring minimal tape library training for IT staff. This allows for strong offline data protection that meets all compliance requirements and can be left unattended or easily managed by the IT staff.

LTO Tape Autoloader Definition

The definition of a tape autoloader is that it has one or two tape drives and multiple tape media slots with robotics controlled by backup software to move tapes around. They were designed to automate the mundane task of manually inserting tapes into standalone tape drives. As disk capacities increased and network speeds improved organisations could then backup to a central LTO tape autoloader using backup software.
