ATTO Technology Announces Support For LTO-9 Tape Technology

ATTO is introducing support for LTO-9 tape technology across its product lines.

Linear Tape-Open generation nine (LTO-9) technology stores up to 18TB uncompressed and 45TB compressed which is 50% greater capacity than LTO-8. Transfer speeds reach up to 400MB/s uncompressed and up to 1,000 MB/s compressed. LTO-9 drives are backward compatible with LTO-8 media.

ATTO says it supports backup and archive processes with a full range of connectivity solutions including ATTO Advanced Data Streaming which is built into all ATTO HBAs, bridges and Thunderbolt devices. This tech manages latency to provide controlled acceleration for data streaming thereby maintaining the highest consistent performance.

“When backing up data, write speed is the most important metric,” ATTO says. ATTO SpeedWrite keeps paths between a host and ATTO XstreamCORE intelligent Bridge filled with data to boost write performance by up to 25% over a direct connect SAS HBA connection to tape drives.

“ATTO ThunderLink Thunderbolt adapters and ATTO ExpressSAS GT SAS HBAs deliver the fastest available connection to LTO-9 SAS tape drives. Featuring a full range of port configurations and driver support, easy-to-use features, extensive industry qualifications and integrates with up to 16 tape drives per bridge.

“ATTO XstreamCORE enable the addition of direct-attached SAS tape to shared Ethernet networks, providing a flexible and easy way to scale and remotely share LTO-9 tape devices.”
