Linear Tape File System

Enabling New Ways to Manage, Access, and Protect Data

FEATURES SUMMARY:

Ease of use | Simply drag and drop files to and from tape.

Fast access | Once you load a tape, the directories and files are displayed on your screen directory, without the need to run backup software first. You never need to rebuild a catalog.

File portability | Since the information written to tape is self-contained, data recovery is independent of hardware or software platforms. Tapes can be exchanged easily between different operating systems and software.
