Quantum's LTO-8 tape drives deliver reliable data protection with tremendous capacity and performance at an affordable price. In addition, they use less power than LTO-5 drives, making a "greener" and more energy efficient solution.

  • Fast backup and restore performance–at speeds up to 750 MB/s (2.7 TB/hr) * Assumes 2.5:1 compression
  • Protect 30 TB of data on each cartridge at 2.5:1 compression
  • Drag and drop files in native format directly to LTO media using LTFS, no backup software needed
  • Secure protection with AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption
  • WORM (Write Once, Read Many) functionality

The LTO-8 drive uses the latest industry-standard interface—6 Gb/sec Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)—to allow for easy installation and integration into your data center. Quantum's LTO-8 tape drives also protect your investment by providing one generation backward read and write compatibility to LTO-7.

Keep data secure while not impacting back up or restore performance with hardware-based AES 256-bit data encryption. In addition, LTO-8 is WORM capable allowing companies from healthcare, financial, and other related industries to meet tough regulatory requirements.

"Backup Ready" solutions are cost-effective, easy to install, and fully supported by Quantum.
