Data protection and archiving experts Tandberg Data, have announced new LTO-6 tape drives, tape automation and media products, which will be available in December 2012 through Tandberg Data's established channel of distributor and reseller partners.
The new Tandberg Data LTO-6 tape solutions are designed to provide increased capacity, performance and functionality for small and medium-sized businesses looking to better manage data growth and reduce storage costs.
"LTO tape technology is the most cost-effective way to protect the deluge of digital data generated daily by most businesses," said Andrew Martin, Vice President of APJ and Middle East at Tandberg Data. "When storing data on a Tandberg Data LTO-6 tape drive or tape automation product, small and medium-sized businesses will reap significant cost benefits due to the high capacity, small footprint and low power and cooling requirements."
The new Tandberg Data LTO-6 tape drive is designed to deliver up to 6.25TB of compressed cartridge capacity and speeds of up to 1.4TB per hour, simplifying data protection and archiving operations (based on a 2.5:1 compression ratio). With LTO-6, the Tandberg Data StorageLoader is offering up to 50TB, the StorageLibrary T24 up to 150TB and the StorageLibrary T40+ up to 250TB of compressed storage.

All LTO-6 tape products will support 256-bit AES hardware encryption and WORM for regulatory compliance. LTO-6 tape drives will support LTFS (Linear Tape File System) technology with up to two partitions on a single data cartridge, allowing users to store different file types in different locations on each tape to reduce access times. The Tandberg Data LTO-6 tape drive is available with a SAS or FC interface and is offered in standalone or automation configurations.
