LTO key features and benefits

Storage capacity of 3TB (2:1 compression) per cartridge

  • LTO Ultrium5 can store up to 3 TB per cartridge, reducing the number of cartridges

Security

  • LTO Ultrium5 helps secure archiving with its continued WORM and Encryption capability.

Autonomic power-saving mode

  • When being inactive, LTO Ultrium5 automatically switches its operation to power-saving "sleep" mode. This enables 10 to 45% less power consumption than any other previous generation.

Enabling use of previous generation cartridge tapes

  • LTO Ultrium5 tape drive provides the capability to read/write Ultrium4 and read Ulltrium3 cartridges. This achieves efficient use of data assets.
