Retrospect’s LTO-6 and LTFS certifications
We’re pleased to announce two updates to Retrospect’s tape device support
Retrospect Backup and Recovery Software announced two updates to their tape device support. As we mentioned back in May, we support a wide variety of storage devices, media, and interfaces. Now, we can add to that list all LTO-6 tape devices, including units from HP, IBM, Quantum, Dell, and Tandberg. With these certifications, Retrospect officially supports every LTO tape drive and interface–SCSI, Fibre Channel, and SAS.
LTO-6 has a capacity of 2.5 TB native or 6.25 TB compressed, with a performance of 1.4 TB/Hr (compressed). It is certified for Retrospect for Mac 9.0.2 or Windows 7.7.620 and above.
LTFS is a new tape format that provides a file system interface to tape devices instead of a proprietary data format. With LTFS, you can copy files to tape, send the tape to a colleague, and they don’t need proprietary software to read those files. Retrospect 8.5 for Windows is certified for LTFS support on Quantum LTO-5 and HP LTO-6 using the Duplicate feature, and we’re continuing to verify our LTFS support across all of our existing certified tape devices.
