As data continues to grow, and cyber threats continue to escalate, organizations need a simple and dependable way to keep data protected. Quantum’s LTO tape drives are an ideal solution for backing up small data sets to tape and are available in a variety of form factors to help you store, manage, and protect your data.

Tape is a Key Part of a Comprehensive Data Protection Strategy: Backing up data using the backup best practice rule such as 3-2- 1-1 – 3 copies of your data, in 2 different forms of media, 1 copy offsite (cloud) and 1 copy offline (on-prem tape) – is crucial for every organization, no matter what the size of the budget or the IT staff is. Quantum offers LTO-9, LTO-8, and LTO-7 tape drives in a half-height form factor, and every tape drive sold includes DATASTOR backup software with deduplication to provide a complete backup solution.

Quantum LTO Tape Drives Provide a Simple, Reliable Solution: Quantum LTO Tape Drives deliver fast, reliable data protection at an affordable price. They offer backup speeds up to 750 MB/sec and when paired with an LTO-9 cartridge, you can store up to 45 TB (compressed) of data on a single cartridge gaining more than 50% storage capacity in the same footprint. Quantum’s LTO cartridges or any LTO media, provide easily transportable backup storage for DR protection, and their AES 256-bit encryption makes sure that no one else can access, delete, or encrypt your data. The WORM-cartridge option provides an even higher level of security.
