LTO Technology for Long-Term Data Protection

LTO tape technology provides organizations with reliable, long-term data protection and preservation. With LTO tape drives, organizations can meet security and compliance requirements, while at the same time, save on storage footprint, power, and cooling costs, which can make a significant difference in operating costs for larger library environments.

Featured Highlights

  • Lowest cost per GB.
  • Tape offers lower power and cooling costs, plus a lower footprint leads to improved TCO.
  • Linear Tape File System (LTFS) support.
  • AES 256-bit Encryption – Military-grade encryption comes standard.
  • WORM technology – Makes data non-rewriteable and non-erasable, which acts as an immutable vault within your tape library to secure and protect an offline copy from ransomware.


Quantum’s commitment to tape technology and its future roadmap will continue with the next generation of LTO technology.
