Symply’s LTO media provides reliability, cost and security. LTO tape or Linear Tape Open, and also known as the LTO Ultrium format is a powerful, scalable, adaptable open tape format that is optimized for high capacity, maximum storage density, and performance. It provides a secure and portable way to store multiple copies of your data, often complementing disk and flash-based storage systems by providing an offline backup and/or archive option that means your data remains secure.
Symply offers LTO-7, LTO-8, and the latest generation LTO-9 media, all are optimized for performance and reliability in either our Symply Desktop or Rackmount systems or automated environments from any of the tape library vendors, for any backup and/or archiving application.
LTO-9 media Optimization, also referred to as Characterization is a new feature for LTO-9 tape drives. The increased number of tracks used to write data on the LTO-9 tape requires greater precision. Media optimization creates a referenced calibration for each cartridge that enables the tape drive’s intelligent alignment to optimize data placement, thus enhancing the LTO-9 tape’s long-term media durability.
When LTO-9 media is used in an LTO-9 tape drive, it needs to undergo the optimization process. Media optimization applies only to LTO-9 tapes in an LTO-9 drive and is a one-time process that takes about 40 minutes to complete. Although most media optimizations will complete within 60 minutes some media optimizations may take up to 2 hours.
All the Symply LTO-9 media we ship bundled with the SymplyPRO LTO products, is pre-optimized and barcoded in our labs, saving you time and money. Symply also sell pre-optimized LTO-9 media in packs of 5, via our webstore or via our network of value-added resellers.
