Getting To Know.. LTO 5

Why LTO-5 is Great to Consider for Business

There is understandably a lot of concern about what backup solutions are the most effective for business, and there are many options to choose from. To those that want to run a business and keep IT costs down, choosing the right backup solution can mean money in the pocket now and money not getting burned up or washed away later.

With massive growth in data storage happening, the need grows with it for backup solutions that can give the most storage, with the least output of cash. Disk to Disk to Disk seems to be the go to solution that is getting the most talk, but is it what you want for your company?

There was an interesting article from Reuters that considers the overall cost of implementing various solutions -

With cost being one of the first things considered, the fact that disk to disk to tape seems to offer short and long term cost savings was important. That alone could be a deal maker or breaker for small companies. If data needs are going off the charts, wouldn't it be nice to reduce those costs?

Thinking about the purpose of Data Backup, long term archival through tape also offers some distinct advantages, one being the fact that tape doesn't get corrupted like disks can, and if you have a slow internet connection, who really has the time to wait for your backup to get recovered from offsite disk or a cloud backup environment?

The makers of tape backup solutions have been working tirelessly to remind the world that tape has a valuable role in the modern IT climate, with Quantum as a company that is taking the lead with the introduction of LTO-5 with 3 TB of storage per cartridge, (assuming 2:1 compression). Now is the time that businesses can show that they really do have their finger on the pulse of what is going on in terms of smart IT management, why not consider adding an LTO-5 device to your backup strategy?
