Munich, Germany(25 Oct 2017)
LTO tape technology is a future-proof, long-term storage solution. It provides energy efficiency and maximum security at an affordable price point. The latest generation 8 of LTO Ultrium radically advances usability and data management in combination with Archiware’s P5 Software Suite.
The new LTO-8 increases storage capacity to 12TB native (30TB compressed) per cartridge using a 2.5:1 ratio. This optimizes big data workloads managed by P5 Archive, allowing for fewer tape cartridges to be used to store the same amount of data. For P5 Backup, the performance of backup and restore is improved with a transfer rate of 360 MB/sec native (750 MB/sec compressed). High-performance setups configured in P5 can further increase efficiency through the parallel use of multiple drives in the tape library.
The one-generation backwards read and write compatibility with LTO-7 cartridges improves flexibility and cost-effectiveness. To optimize storage investment, the same LTO tape hardware can be utilized for both P5 Backup and P5 Archive.
The latest Archiware P5 version 5.5.1 is now available as an upgrade or 30-day free trial on http://p5.archiware.com/download
