ETERNUS LT270 S2 is an open systems tape library that employs highly reliable, large-capacity LTO Ultrium tape drives. With the capability to back up data from multiple servers into a single tape library, this model achieves efficient utilization of storage assets while reducing operating costs and TCO.

ETERNUS LT270 S2 provides high reliability with the duplicate cartridge carrier robots and other mechanisms. If one robot has a malfunction, the other one takes over tasks to continue system operation. A faulty robot can be hot-swapped during operation. Moreover, power supply and fans are in a redundant configuration, enabling uninterrupted operation even during hot swapping in the unlikely event of a malfunction.

Having been improved many times and repeatedly in its long history, tape media technology provides much higher reliability than other comparable technologies. The LTO Ultrium tape drive built into ETERNUS LT270 S2 uses a newly designed tape threading mechanism to further stabilize tape winding, and its variable-speed tape operation eliminates movement for tape repositioning, thereby preventing early tape deterioration and ensuring increased tape reliability.
