    Fujitsu ETERNUS LT Family Supports LTO 8 Technology

    – Fujitsu today announces that its ETERNUS LT product family now supports the latest generation LTO-8 tape drives for long-term back up and archiving, doubling data capacity from the previous tape generation. With LTO-8 technology, ETERNUS LT tape libraries now can store up to 30TB of compressed data per cartridge.
