Oracle has released StorageTek LTO 6 Tape Drives with Fibre Channel connectivity for Oracle’s StorageTek SL8500 and SL3000 Tape Libraries.
StorageTek LTO 6 Tape Drives offer 2.5 TB native storage capacity on a single tape cartridge, and are backward compatible with StorageTek LTO 5 and LTO 4. Customers can also mix and match StorageTek LTO tape drives and StorageTek T10000 series enterprise tape drives in the same tape library.
StorageTek LTO 6 Tape Drives are also compatible with Oracle’s StorageTek Linear Tape File System, Open Edition, which allows users to organize and search for data on tape as they would on disk-based NAS devices.
