LTO technology was first introduced in 2000 and is currently in it’s seventh generation. LTO-7 specifications support tape cartridge storage uncompressed capacity of up to 6TB, which is why it is an attractive data archive option for media companies, who face an ever increasing challenge to cope with the amount of data that is needs to be managed.

Linear Tape File System (LTFS) allows files stored on LTO tapes to be accessed in a similar way to those on disk or removable flash drives. This has made LTO technology accessible to non-techies and is attractive to media professionals looking for a familiar way to interface with their archived data.
