IBM LTO Ultrium 7

Tape cartridge portability

Facilitates remote, offline data storage for superior protection from natural or man-made threats. You can also reduce the risk of data loss or corruption.

IBM Spectrum Archive support

Enable data file search and retrieval using directory tree structures and drag-and-drop techniques. The solution significantly enhances data access and retrieval and potentially reduces or eliminates software licensing costs and dependencies for data retrieval from tape.

Adherence to Linear Tape-Open Ultrium 7 standard

Ensure compatibility with LTO Ultrium 7 vendors’ tape drive and automation products. The solution also reduces your data storage investment risk by using open standards-based tape technology. Also, a new initialization feature will allow you to use new LTO generation 7 cartridges as LTO-8 Type M media cartridges ready to be initialized on site to increase capacity from 6 TB to 9 TB.

Cartridge model and label options

Available in rewritable and write-once-read-many (WORM) cartridge models and with custom, as well as blank and RFID-embedded cartridge labels.

IBM LTO Ultrium8

Tape cartridge portability

Facilitates remote, offline data storage for superior protection from natural or manmade threats that can impact online or on-site data storage. IBM LTO 8 data cartridges are compatible with LTO Ultrium 8 tape drives, which offer device-level data encryption to ensure data privacy and reduce the risk of data corruption due to virus or sabotage. The WORM cartridge model stores data in a non-erasable, non-rewritable format to prevent overwriting and reduce the risk of data loss due to human error.

IBM Spectrum Archive™ support

With IBM Spectrum Archive, the data files are indexed to facilitate search and retrieval using disk-like directory tree structures and drag-and-drop techniques to improve the usability of tape solutions. IBM Spectrum Archive allows users and applications to directly retrieve files from tape rather than rely on proprietary, third-party applications, thereby significantly enhancing data access and potentially reducing software licensing costs and dependencies.
