What is LTO 7?

LTO-7 Ultrium is a cost-effective backup technology for business. With LTO-7’s greater storage capacity, businesses can maintain or reduce their existing footprint with industry-leading storage technology. The tape libraries use advanced “cabinets” instead of slots, and TeraPack containers in place of individual cartridges, resulting in an unrivaled storage density. This incredible concentration of storage allows for the maximization of data that can be stored per square foot of data center space. Additionally, 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 7 Ultrium tape storage, is typically used for data backup, archiving and offline storage. LTO 7 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.
