ATTO Technology has announced support for LTO-9 tape technology across its product lines.
Linear Tape-Open generation nine (LTO-9) technology improves upon the prior generation with more storage capacity and transfer speed. LTO-9 Ultrium tape stores up to 18TB uncompressed and 45TB compressed which is 50% greater capacity than LTO-8. Transfer speeds reach up to 400MB/s uncompressed and up to 1,000MB/s compressed. LTO-9 drives are backward compatible with LTO-8 media.
ATTO supports backup and archive processes end-to-end with a full range of connectivity solutions for every environment. Industry-exclusive ATTO features and technologies allow for quicker and safer backups plus they provide design flexibility otherwise unavailable to system designers.
ATTO Advanced Data Streaming, built into all ATTO HBAs, bridges and Thunderbolt devices, manages latency to provide controlled acceleration for smooth data streaming to maintain the highest consistent performance.
When backing up data, write speed is the most important metric. ATTO SpeedWrite keeps paths between a host and ATTO XstreamCORE intelligent Bridge filled with data to boost write performance by up to 25% over a direct connect SAS HBA connection to tape drives.
ATTO ThunderLink Thunderbolt adapters and ATTO ExpressSAS GT SAS HBAs deliver the fastest available connection to LTO-9 SAS tape drives. Featuring a full range of port configurations and driver support, easy-to-use features, extensive industry qualifications and integration with up to 16 tape drives per bridge.
ATTO XstreamCORE intelligent Bridges enable the addition of direct-attached SAS tape to shared Ethernet networks, providing a flexible and easy way to scale and remotely share LTO-9 tape devices.
