Linear Tape Open (LTO) archiving solutions for a reliable way to backup and archive your digital assets for short and long term storage. All archiving products use Linear Tape File System (LTFS) making it easy to store and retrieve your data. Broadcast and media industries can’t live without

LTFS creates a kind of tape NAS. The LTFS specification defines the format and layout of the tape, and it does this on the tape. The LTFS catalogue or index is written in Extensible Markup Language (XML) and stored along the full  length of the media, not at one particular end of the tape on a separate partition from the data. This means the index can be changed or modified as needed, without affecting the data partition, and without having to rewind the media. LTFS is available from LTO  generation 5. Operating systems and applications can present LTFS metadata in standard hierarchical file system style.
