Linear tape open (LTO) is a magnetic tape technology based on linear recording on ½ inch wide tapes. Improvements in the fields of server technology, data compression, track layout and error correction code have created greater storage capacity, higher performance and better reliability. With a current compressed capacity of up to 6.25 TB, these cartridges are the first choice for data backup, restoration and archiving applications.
The Library Pack is a form of plastic packaging that provides protection against impacts, dust and moisture during transportation and handling. It has many benefits: it makes handling easy for use in automated systems, the transparent Library Pack allows the barcode label to be easily identified, and it prevents packaging waste. A Library Pack holds and protects 20 LTO tapes.
