ultrium LTO 8

When we last evaluated the storage options for media and broadcasting (link here) the comparison was against LTO, ODA, HDD, and Cloud. Depending on your type of media workload the choices varied.

However, with the introduction of LTO 8, there is definitely a buzz in the media storage market. LTO 8 doubles the Storage capacity of LTO7 and there is a substantial increase in throughput also. remember that a new LTO 8 tape costs almost as same as an LTO7 tape as on today. With this LTO technology has taken a clear lead over other technologies.

Now Two copies of your media on LTO 8 costs less than 1 copy on competing technologies 

LTO 8 is a big relief for IT experts grappling with the increasing media resolution. Storage of 4K media is far more practical and cost-effective with LTO8.
