LTO technology is being used for some of the world’s most demanding storage applications. Whether you’re editing the next Hollywood blockbuster, protecting valuable sets of data or simply retaining data for the longterm, LTO technology can help address your specific needs with a lowcost, reliable and secure solution.


Backing up your data in a secure way is essential in the zettabyte era. Whether it’s a secondary copy of valuable data that’s already stored on another medium or providing another level of offline assurance to a disk-to-disk system, LTO technology delivers a cost-effective means for restoring your data quickly.

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 files need to be in an intermediate state between online storage (very rapid access to data) and offline storage (infrequent access to data) called nearline storage. With high data transfer speeds, low cost and high capacity, LTO tape is perfect for managing nearline data and bringing it online very rapidly when required.

High Capacity Transfer

Even with some of the fastest connections, transferring terabytes or petabytes of data to the cloud or a remote data center can take days and tax your network resources. A shipment of an LTO tape can not only get the data there faster in some cases, but it also provides a backup to the original.

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.
