LTO ULTRIUM GENERATION 4 TAPE TECHNOLOGY / ENCRYPTION, TAPE BACKUP, DISK OR BOTH?

TAPE DRIVE ENCRYPTION CAN HELP PROTECT DATA

Each month many companies, big or small, experience a data security loss with the potential exposure of thousands to millions of sensitive customer or employee records. Fines, penalties, public notification and the loss of business and damage to reputation can make a security breach costly.

LTO-4 ENCRYPTION CAN HELP PROVIDE:

  • Added level of data protection to tape cartridges at rest or in transit
  • Fast drive-level encryption for high backup performance
  • LTO-4 tape drives can first compress the data and then encrypt for high cartridge capacities
  • Reduce the drain on server resources and reduce the need for encryption appliances

LTO ULTRIUM GENERATION 4 TAPE TECHNOLOGY can help you protect data with outstanding state of the art features:

INCREASED PERFORMANCE OF UP TO 240MB PER SECOND DATA RATE*

  • Enhanced productivity – up to 864GB* per hour per drive
  • Improved batch window management. A four drive library could perform up to 3.5TB* per hour

INCREASED CARTRIDGE CAPACITY OF UP TO 1.6TB*

  • Holds contents of up to eight LTO 1 cartridges, 4 LTO-2, 2 LTO-3
  • Equivalent to storing up to 300 DVD movies*
  • Could store the entire 29 million books in the Library of Congress on about 9 LTO-4 cartridges*

LTO-4 TAPE TECHNOLOGY…YOUR SMART BET FOR DATA PROTECTION.

  • LTO-4 technology is the most cost effective means to store data(1.6TB* for about 4 cents per GB)
  • LTO-4 tape drives address security with built-in encryption and tapes are removeable for off site protection
  • LTO-4 tape is reliable and has a roadmap to meet your growing data requirements

TAPE BACKUP, DISK OR BOTH?

Some IT departments are looking at disk only solutions for backup, restore, archive and disaster recovery. This may include replicating data from disk to disk which can help protect it, however, if there is a virus, sabotage or system error, the replicated data may also be corrupted.

Protecting data is a matter of cost and risk. Many are concerned about protecting data from sabotage, viruses, local and regional disasters while still achieving performance and cost objectives. Data that is always on-line can be subject to corruption or loss.

A combination of disk and tape can help protect data and address other objectives. This strategic blend of secondary disk system or virtual tape library for high performance backup requirements and tape for low recall backups/archive and offline, offsite low cost, low energy protection can help address the IT manager’s objectives.SATA disk and consumes nearly 300 times less energy for power and cooling than SATA disk.

STRATEGIC BLEND OF DISK AND TAPE FOR BACKUP, RECALL, ARCHIVE PROTECTION

  • Disk utilized for high recall backup applications
  • Disk offers high performance and fast access to recent data
  • Tape for low recall backup applications, data retention and disaster recovery
  • Best practices
  • Offline for I/O isolation-protection
  • Portable for disaster protection
  • Different form of storage for media protection
  • Provides multiple copies economically
  • Low TCO and energy consumption (LTO cartridge is about 4 cents/Gigabyte)*
  • Long shelf life (up to 30 years)
  • High reliability (over 2.5M drive shipments, over 100M cartridge shipments)
  • LTO-4 Tape Drive Encryption to help address data security
  • LTO-4 WORM cartridge capability to help address compliance initiatives
  • D2D2T offers cost and energy efficiency advantages over D2D
  • D2D2T data centers combine the best attributes of both Disk and Tape
  • Disk storage can help users attain rapid access to recent data
  • LTO tape can help users address cost, compliance, data protection and energy objectives for long term retention & archive of data
