About IBM LTO4
IBM LTO-4 features 800GB native, or 1.6TB with 2:1 data compression. Performance is also improved with a transfer rate of 240MB/s. This boost in performance is not the only advancement: LTO-4 incorporates additional support for advanced data protection and security features. LTO-4 will continue to support the write-once, read-many (WORM) functionality and will now support 256-bit AES encryption.
IBM is delivering high-capacity LTO Generation 4 media that helps provide clients the ability to address the demanding growth in data storage. Increased cartridge capacity helps reduce the amount of equipment, space and human intervention required for daily tape operations. In addition, it helps reduce the number of cartridges and time associated with backup and restore operations, thus helping lower operational costs.
