LTO technology is widely used in some of the world’s most demanding storage applications. Whether it’s editing the next Hollywood blockbuster, protecting valuable data sets or simply finding a forever home for burgeoning data assets, LTO technology delivers an enduring, low-cost solution.


Backing up your data is vital in the zettabyte era, where every organization has a responsibility to protect and preserve its data assets. Whether it’s creating a secondary copy of valuable data already stored on another medium or providing an extra level of offline assurance to a disk-to-disk system, LTO technology delivers a robust and cost-effective means to store, find and retrieve data. 

Long-Term and Active Archiving

Sometimes you don’t need data readily available, but it might need to be accessed at a later time. LTO Ultrium tape storage can provide for years of protection at a cost much lower than other storage solutions.

Nearline Storage

Sometimes, data files need to be kept in an intermediate state between online storage, providing immediate, real-time access to data, and offline storage where data is rarely accessed. This is called nearline storage. With high data transfer speeds and capacity, coupled with, low operational cost, LTO tape is perfect for managing nearline data and bringing it online very rapidly when required.

High Capacity Transfer

Even with the fastest connections, transferring terabytes or petabytes of data to and from the cloud or a remote data center can take several days and put a strain on your network resources. A physical shipment of an LTO tape could not only get the data there faster but will also provide a vital backup copy to support disaster recovery and restore lost data.

Capture and Offload

Storage media rarely is a one-size-fits-all solution. For applications where more expensive media – such as solid-state disk – is used to capture initial content or data, LTO tape is a perfect solution for offload and retention, such as video production or oil/exploration data aggregation.
