The Spectra Logic white paper, “Best Practices for Migrating to LTO-8 Technology,” sheds light on the technological advancements achieved with the newest LTO generation. LTO-8 will allow customers to store much more data and better utilize their existing tape library footprint — with twice the capacity at 30TB compressed (12TB native) per cartridge; a 20 percent increase in performance at 750MB/sec compressed (360MB/sec native); and breakthrough drive head technology (TMR- Tunneling Magnetoresistive), which enables significantly higher density on tapes.

- New methods for migrating LTO tapes
- How to achieve capacity and performance improvements
- When to do a hard, soft or hybrid migration
