Quantum LTO 7 Tape Drive, External Tabletop 6Gb/s SAS Black (TC-L72BN-AR)

Quantum
Mfg No: TC-L72BN-AR
Our Prod ID: TC-L72BN-AR
Quantum LTO 7 Tape Drive, External Tabletop 6Gb/s SAS Black (TC-L72BN-AR)

Overview

Quantum LTO 7 Tape Drive, Table Top (TC-L72BN-AR)
with DATASTOR Shield Deduplication Software

The Quantum LTO-7 Table Top tape drive delivers reliable data protection, tremendous capacity and world-class performance at an affordable price. In addition, the LTO 7 drives consume less power than LTO-5 drives, making a "greener" and more energy efficient solution.

Features and Benefits

  • Storage Capacity of 6TB Native and up to 15TB compressed on a single LTO 7 Tape
  • Fast backup and restore performance: speeds up to 750MB/s (2.7TB/hr)*
  • When you use LTFS, you can drag and drop files in native format directly to LTO tape media, no backup software needed
  • Secure protection with AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption
  • WORM (Write Once, Read Many) functionality
  • Partitioning capability
  • Two generations of backward read compatibility. Can read LTO 5 and LTO 6 Tapes, can write to LTO 7 and LTO 6 tapes.
  • Includes DATASTORE Shield Deduplication Backup Software
  • Warranty: 3 years limited with Rapid Exchange from Quantum

*Assumes 2.5:1 compression for LTO-7 and LTO-6, 2:1 for other LTO

Backup Software
Quantum tape drives now include DATASTOR Shield™ backup software with deduplication to supercharge your backup. Quantum and DATASTOR have teamed up to provide the first backup with deduplication straight to tape. This technology, which reduces backups significantly (up to 20X), allows you to store more data per tape than competitive models.

LTFS (Linear Tape File System)
New LTFS functionality allows customers to simply drag and drop files to LTO-7 as they would to a hard drive or USB drive using Linear Tape File System (LTFS) software. This eliminates the need for backup software and allows the information written to tape to be exchanged easily between different users, operating systems, and software. This is highly beneficial for many applications including media and entertainment, geospatial imaging, other video and imaging applications, long-term archiving, and other applications where removing the dependence on a proprietary format is important. LTFS is compatible with Windows, Linux and Apple Macintosh. LTFS Version 2.0 or higher is required for LTO-7 (Linux, Mac, and Windows).  Download Quantum LTFS Software
