Quantum LTO-5 HH (Half-Height) Tape Drive (Model C), Tabletop Kit, SAS HBA Bundle, 6Gb/s SAS
This Quantum LTO-5 standalone half-height tape drive offers tremendous capacity at a less-than-tremendous price. Comes with everything you need to go from box to backup in minutes!
LTO 5 technology offers native capacity of up to 1.5TB and transfer rates up to 160MB/sec per tape cartridge. All while being a more energy efficient alternative to an LTO 4 drive, and allowing you to leave less of an environmental footprint.
One of the most attractive benefits of upgrading to LTO 5 is the new Linear Tape File System (LTFS) technology. LTFS allows you to use the tape as if it were an external hard drive. Once the tape is loaded and mounted in the LTO-5 Drive, it becomes visible as if it were a disk. You can drag and drop files from the server, see the list of files saved on the tape, and use point and click to restore. All you need to do is download and install the LTFS software, available here.
Don't worry, the Quantum LTO-5 drive features backward read and write compatibility with LTO 4 tapes, and backward read compatibility for LTO 3 media. All of your data history is still safe and accessible!
Feel secure with AES 256-bit data encryption, featured on Quantum LTO 5 drives. This encryption is hardware-based, for the highest level security without costing anything in its encryption process performance. LTO-5 is also WORM-capable, when used with LTO WORM data cartridges.
And, new partitioning functionality featured on the Quantum LTO-5 drive allows for tape-aware file searches and a more efficient workflow.
Quantum's "Backup Ready" certified solutions boast a box-to-backup situation for any user in only minutes.
