LTO-7 TechnologyProduct Features


15TB capacity per cartridge when compressed –more than double capacity from the previous generation.


LTO-7 drives are designed with backwards-compatible read-and-write capability with LTO-6 cartridges, and backward read capabilities with LTO-5 cartridges, protecting investments and ease implementation.

Drag & Drop

Linear Tape File System (LTFS) gives LTO-7, LTO-6 and LTO-5 users the ability to use tape in a fashion like disk or other removable storage media for outstanding management and usability. The tape contents appear in the OS browser directory and support simple "drag and drop" operations.


The LTO-5,LTO-6 and LTO-7 specifications enable a new dual partitioning feature which provides faster data access and improved data management.

Data Security

Tape drive-based 256-bit AES encryption helps protect sensitive information.

Blazing Speed

LTO Ultrium-7 technology has up to 2.7 TB per drive/hour data transfer rate (assuming 2.5:1 compression) for improved efficiency.
