LTO-6 tape drives are now available for ETERNUS LT20 S2/ LT40 S2/ LT60 S2 tape libraries.

High Capacity, High Speed and More Power-Saving with LTO-6 ETERNUS LT20 S2/ LT40 S2/ LT60 S2 Tape Libraries

February 1st, 2013

Fujitsu's ETERNUS LT20 S2/ LT40 S2/ LT60 S2 tape libraries are available with LTO Ultrium 6 tape drives as of today. The new LTO-6 tape technology helps to improve high-speed processing through increasing the maximum data transfer rate and reducing energy consumption.

Improvements in high-speed processing

  • 1.7x larger (2.1x for compressed data) capacity compared with the LTO-5.
  • 1.2x faster (1.4x for compressed data) data transfer rate compared with the LTO-5.
  • Reduced backup time of 2.5TB to approx. 4 hours.

2.5TB Backup Time

(*Note: for uncompressed data)

LTO-6 helps lower power consumption in the ETERNUS LT S2 series

LTO Ultrium 6 tape drive furthermore reduces power consumption.

Compatibility with pervious LTO's

  • LTO-6 drives are read and write compatible with LTO-5 tapes, and read compatible with LTO-4 tapes.
  • Compatibility with existing tape systems can alleviate associated costs.

Security

  • Supports Write Once Read Many (WORM) technology.
  • Supports 256bitAES data encryption features (Installed backup software must support encryption technology).
