Linear Tape File System (LTFS)
LTFS enables LTO 5 tape drives to segment a LTO 5 tape into 2 partitions, These partitions can be independently accessed to help provide faster data access and improved data management. This is a non-proprietary data format file system that is independent of specific software applications that can enhance ease of use and sharing of data on tape between platforms.
Linear Tape File System (LTFS) allows you to use an LTO 5, LTO 6 or higher generation LTO drive as if it were an external hard drive or USB drive. This provides users with traditional advantages of tape (reliability, longevity, portability and low cost) with a familiar interface providing users faster and easier direct access to files on data tape. LTFS is an open standard developed by IBM that is cross-platform compatible (Windows, Mac, Linux). You can save your data or project to tape, send it to a co-worker, customer, editor and, as long as they have the hardware and LTFS software, they can read it.
In addition to LTFS Single Drive Edition, IBM has also developed LTFS Storage Manager, LTFS Library Edition and LTFS Enterprise Edition versions.
