LTO Generation 6 Technology Has Arrived

The latest generation of LTO Ultrium products (LTO 6) started to hit the market this month. LTO Ultrium Generation 6 technology provides a significant upgrade in speed and capacity over the previous generation, with a single tape offering up 6.25 TB of compressed capacity* – more than twice the compressed capacity of LTO Ultrium Generation 5 tape – and up to a 400 MB per second data transfer rate compressed for outstanding productivity.

With LTO-6 technology, video producers can back up their content at high speeds of up to 160MB per second (native). And for storage, imagine being able to fit over 100 feature-length Blu-ray movies on one tape… With LTO-6 technology, it's possible.

LTO-6 specifications also continue to provide for the features that you've come to rely upon from previous generations: WORM to address compliance requirements, encryption to help secure sensitive information and partitioning – which allows for "game changing" Linear Tape File System (LTFS) that gives tape easy-to-use file "drag and drop" capabilities for a variety of compatible operating systems. LTO-6 drives also continue LTO Ultrium technology backward compatibility capabilities, helping to preserve investments by reading LTO-4, LTO-5 and LTO-6 tapes and writing to LTO-5 and LTO-6 tapes.
