          Ordering Information

          One of the exciting features available with the Quantum LTO-5 tape drives is called the Linear Tape File System (LTFS), which allows you to use the tape almost as if it were a hard disk. You can drag and drop files from your server to the tape, see the list of saved files using a standard operating system directory (no backup software catalog needed), and use point and click to restore. To implement this feature, you simply need to download and install the LTFS software on your host machine, using the link at right.

          LTFS is an open standard, interchangeable with other LTO-5 brands, and is also cross-platform, so you can use the tape as you would a USB flash drive. Simply load an LTFS-formatted tape into your LTO-5 drive, mount it into the file system, and it becomes visible as if it were a disk. Currently, the Quantum LTFS software supports Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

          Now, with the Quantum Scalar LTFS appliance, you can enjoy all the benefits of LTFS technology on your Quantum Scalar Libraries! The Scalar LTFS appliance features a NAS front-end, connects to your Scalar libraries via SAS or Fibre-channel and is based on the LTFS open-standard for content formatting. Because it works with existing application and file system tools, LTFS-based content is easily managed, transported and accessible for long-term data protection and archival storage. The Scalar LTFS appliance can also be used to import and export LTFS open-standard media into a StorNext File System. This flexibility provides a cost-effective alternative for content workflow, for cloud and content distribution services, and for applications such as video or unstructured data archiving.
