What is LTO 3?
LTO-3 tape is a type Linear Tape Open (LTO) Conglomerate released in 2005 and followed by LTO-4 tape in 2007. LTO-3 offers a capacity of 800GB and data transfer rates of up to 245GB/hr native, 324GB/hr compressed. Both the capacity and data transfer rates for LTO-3 assume a 2:1 compression ratio, while uncompressed capacity is 400 GB per 80 MBps.
The LTO-3 tape format introduced the write once, read many (WORM) attribute that writes information to the tape once and prevents it from being erased. The WORM feature has since proven to be a giant leap forward in terms of secure data storage for the healthcare industry.
What is LTO Used For?
In today’s data center, tape storage is being replaced by disk and other recent data storage methods. However, tape technology still has its benefits. Tape is better fit for long-term storage and archiving than disk storage thanks to its reduced cost, higher capacity and transportability.
LTO 3 Ultrium tape storage, is typically used for data backup, archiving and offline storage. LTO 3 can also be used for high-capacity transfers, in some cases physically moving terabytes of data faster than an upload to the cloud or a remote data center.
