Delivers Increased Density, Capacity, Performance and Energy Efficiency for Modern Data Centers
, celebrating 30 years of data storage innovation, announced today thatit is now shipping LTO-5 drives and Spectra certified LTO-5 media cartridges
in its TSeries tape libraries
. The increased capacity and throughput rates of LTO-5
combined with the small footprint and low power requirements of Spectra Logic’s tape libraries
provide customers with the best storage density and energy efficiency available in a tape library today.=&1=& per tape lets customers manage growing data storage more cost effectively. Spectra TSeries tape library
capacity options now scale from an entry point of 15 TB up to 180 PB of native storage.
·=&2=& to each drive allows streamed data throughput to Spectra libraries, optimizes the use of back-up windows and allows faster data archive. Spectra TSeries tape libraries now can deliver over 240TB/hour of uncompressed throughput into the tape archive.
·=&3=& offers seamless access to archive and backup data on tape and smooth integration of new higher performance interface standards. The backward compatibility ensures that data that was written up to five years ago can easily interface with contemporary and higher-density formats.
·=&4=&Media Lifecycle Management (MLM)offers tape media and data integrity verification to ensure data integrity.
·=&6=&minimize data center power consumption to meet budgetary and compliance needs. LTO-5 offers a 40 percent reduction in idle power consumption over LTO-4 technology.
·=&4=&BlueScale encryption with key managementstandard edition is included for free with all LTO libraries. Data encryption in TSeries offers a fast, reliable and affordable encryption solution that minimizes the risk of data loss and subsequent legal and publicity implications.
·=&9=&that extends through LTO-8 provides confidence that archive and backup data that will be securely stored for many years to support long term storage requirements.
Spectra Logic launched its industry exclusive LTO-5 pre-purchase program in September 2009 to provide the benefits of LTO-5 to existing customers. This program allowed customers to purchase LTO-4 drives and exchange them for LTO-5 drives once available, providing investment protection and a guaranteed technology refresh.
