LTO Ultrium

Simple, Cost-Effective and Secure

The LTO Ultrium format is the preferred tape solution, brought to you by some of the most respected names in the storage industry. It’s an “open” format, which allows for compatible offerings from multiple vendors. It’s scalable, providing a broad range of system applications where high capacity, high transfer rates and high reliability is important. There’s also a well-defined technology roadmap, so you know that it’s a technology that you can rely on both today and in the future.

With LTO technology, you can rest assured that your digital assets are protected in a simple, cost-effective and secure system. Learn more about how LTO technology meets your most critical needs.


LTO tape is being used for some of the world’s most demanding storage applications. Whether you’re editing the next Hollywood blockbuster, protecting valuable sets of data or simply retaining data for the long-term, LTO technology can help address your specific needs with a low-cost, reliable and secure solution.

  • BACKUP: Whether it’s a secondary copy of valuable data that’s already stored on another medium or providing another level of offline assurance to a disk-to-disk system, LTO tape delivers a cost-effective means for restoring your data quickly.
  • HIGH CAPACITY TRANSFER: Even with some of the fastest connections, transferring Terabytes of data to the cloud or a remote data center can take days and tax your network resources. A shipment of an LTO tape can not only get the data there faster in some cases, but it also provides a backup to the original.

  • “NEARLINE” STORAGE:Sometimes files need to be in an intermediate state between online storage (very rapid access to data) and offline storage (infrequent access to data) called nearline storage. With high data transfer speeds, low cost and high capacity, LTO tape is perfect for managing nearline data and bringing it online very rapidly when required.
  • CAPTURE AND OFFLOAD: Storage media rarely is a one-size-fits-all solution. For applications where more expensive media – such as solid-state disk – is used to capture initial content or data, LTO tape is a perfection solution for offload and retention, such as video production or oil/exploration data aggregation.
  • LONG-TERM ARCHIVE & OFFLINE STORAGE: Sometimes you don’t need data readily available, but it might need to be accessed at a later time. LTO Ultrium tape storage can provide for years of protection at a cost much lower than other storage solutions.
