What is LTO 5?

LTO-5 media is designed to deliver excellent capacity and reliability at a lower cost per GB than other types of storage medium before it. LTO Ultrium 5 helps reduce the number of cartridges and the amount of equipment, space and labor associated with tape-based storage. Even more so, it helps reduce the time associated with backup and restore operations by reducing the amount of cartridge handling, further lowering operational costs.

What is LTO Used For? 

In today’s data center, tape storage is being replaced by disk and other recent data storage methods. However, tape technology still has its benefits. Tape is better fit for long-term storage and archiving than disk storage thanks to its reduced cost, higher capacity and transportability.

LTO 5 Ultrium tape storage, is typically used for data backup, archiving and offline storage. LTO 5 can also be used for high-capacity transfers, in some cases physically moving terabytes of data faster than an upload to the cloud or a remote data center.
