Types of LTO Tapes?

LTO (Linear Tape-Open) tape migration is the process of transferring data from older LTO tape formats to newer ones. This is done to ensure data accessibility and preservation as older tape formats become obsolete or unreliable.

The TapeMaster-M enables efficient tape storage cloning (same generation to same generation) and migration (one generation to another) of LTO and LTO LTFS tape cartridges. This innovative device allows for seamless tape storage replication from one source (master) tape to one (1:1) or from one master to many targets simultaneously. It is compatible with all generations of LTO and also supports SCSI-based Legacy tape formats like SDLT, DLT, DDS 4MM DAT, AIT, and 8MM Exabyte Mammoth, making it a versatile solution for all your tape storage needs.

The TapeMaster-SA is a fully automated cloning and migration LTO tape migration solution that allows the operator to clone one-to-one or one-to-many, is 100% standalone and does not require the use of off-the-shelf software or operating systems. This is a lights-out solution whereby the user simply loads the master tape(s) and blank (new) tapes and walks away.

The TapeMaster-SM is a fully automated migration solution that enables you to migrate/archive many smaller source tapes (i.e. LTO-3) onto one or larger tape(s) (i.e. LTO-8). It is ideally suited for applications where you would like to migrate/archive all your smaller capacity legacy tapes to the latest LTO tape generation, reducing their tape count, tape footprint and storage fees dramatically.

The TapeMaster-VTL is a fully automated physical-to-virtual tape (P2V) solution that allows for migration of any LTO (or Legacy SCSI) tape to a VTL (Virtual Tape Library). You can then utilize the VTL just as they would the physical tape library but with the performance advantage of using hard disk or SSD based VTL. You also have the option and flexibility to migrate/archive your tapes to any public or private object cloud storage.

Key Benefits of LTO Tape Migration

Data Preservation

Migrating data from older LTO tape formats to newer ones ensures that your data remains accessible and preserved for the long term.

Improved Reliability

Newer LTO tape formats offer improved reliability and durability, reducing the risk of data loss due to tape degradation or damage.

Cost-Effective Solution

Migrating data to newer LTO tape formats is often more cost-effective than maintaining older, obsolete tape formats.

Enhanced Data Accessibility

Newer LTO tape formats offer increased storage capacity and faster data access, making it easier to access and manage your data.

Compliance with Regulations

Migrating data to newer LTO tape formats ensures compliance with regulations and standards regarding data storage and preservation.
