With the introduction of the latest Linear Tape Open (LTO) generation for FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS LT tape systems, Fujitsu continues its pledge to radically simplify backup and archiving with business-centric solutions. The systems provide affordable, scalable and reliable long-term data retention on tape, for example in conjunction with the recently launched FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS CS200c S2 / CS800 S6 Data Protection Appliance1. Comprising new LTO-7 tape drive technology, backup time is significantly reduced even at terabyte scales (2.7TB per hour per LTO-7 tape drive), and overall system capacity is increased by a factor of 2.4.2
The ETERNUS LT family provides hardware-based data encryption resulting in enhanced security and compliance. While all ETERNUS LT systems encrypt the backup data autonomously with hardware encryption through the LTO tape drive, the ETERNUS LT260 generates and manages data encryption keys within the library without the expense of using backup software or the need for an additional server.3 To fulfill extended compliance regulations, all the ETERNUS LT systems are also WORM-ready (Write Once, Read Many).4
The Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS LT tape systems with LTO-7 technology meet a wide range of demanding data storage requirements including long-term archiving, disaster recovery and enabling organizations of all sizes to manage the continued growth of unstructured and Big Data. ETERNUS LT systems are certified for market-leading backup and archiving software. Highly automated, simple and remote operation enables usage without local expert skills. The pay-as-you-grow concept means that customers avoid unnecessary initial investment and remain flexible.
