Overview

Quantum LTO 8 Tape - 20 Tape Library Pack (MR-L8MQN-20)

Good News! The shortage of LTO 8's is over.
In early August, Sony and Fujifilm settled the patent infringement lawsuit that had stopped production and distribution of LTO 8 tape media. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed but production of LTO 8 tapes will resume and we are hoping to see supplies of LTO 8 tapes by the end of September 2019. Fujifilm and Sony currently manufacture LTO 8 tapes for all brands (IBM, Quantum, HPE and of course Sony and Fuji).

What can I use in lieu of LTO 8 tapes?

  • Also, new, unused LTO 7 tape can be formatted as “M8” tape.  LTO-7 "Type M media" is a new LTO-7 tape format with an "M8" label - when initialized it can hold up to 9TB native capacity. Representing the lowest cost per TB option available for use with LTO-8 drives.
