LTO-8 Type M Tape Boosts Storage Capacity from Spectra Logic

Spectra Logic announced today that Spectra Certified LTO-8 Type M media along with LTO-8 drives and all supported media are now available for order. An industry first offering, LTO-8 Type M media provides a 50 percent increase in capacity from 6TB to 9TB using new LTO-7 media.

Spectra Logic Launches LTO-8 Pre-Purchase Program

“LTO-8 tape technology doubles the capacity of LTO-7 to an astonishing 30 TB compressed (12TB native) per cartridge, and improves performance by 20 percent, up to 360Mbps. The additional capacity equates to fewer tape cartridges required to store the same amount of data while the performance boost translates into the need for fewer tape drives to do the same amount of work. In addition, the new LTO-8 drives are backward compatible with LTO-7 tape media, allowing users to read/write any LTO-7 media.”
