Cost-Effective Migration from LTO-1 to the Dell’s Compact LTO Ultrium 2 Tape System

By Rob Miller Subscribe to RSS | April 23rd 2012 | Views:

Your entire organizational data including client information, tax documents, financial data and sales record are the life-blood of your business. Therefore, security and in-time data availability have become the top priorities of every organization. This valuable information, if lost or corrupted, will interrupt your business activities. Furthermore, there is also a high risk of total business failure. Best practice is to periodically create copies of this precious data. The question is that which backup system is ideal for your organization, LTO (Linear Tape Open) format has proved its superior reliability, robust security and cost-effective storage performance in a broad array of IT environments.

Openness of LTO format has spawned competition and attracted the world’s leading companies to develop LTO products. Dell is a highly reliable and foremost LTO brand that offers a complete package for the long term storage requirements. Dell’s LTO2 media tape system is well-suited for robust performance and stringent demands of medium & small enterprises. LTO2 system’s biggest advantage is that it allows write/read operations with your existing LTO 1 tapes, while facilitating system up-gradation at a low cost.

Although, the cartridge size of LTO1 and LTO2 tapes is equivalent, but the capacity difference is 100%. LTO ultrium 2 tapes have 200/400GB capacity, in comparison to the 100GB/200GB of LTO 1 tapes. So the quantity of tapes needed for routine backups or offsite storage will be reduced to half. Reduced media quantity means fewer tape swaps and fast backup operations.

As data centers have become complex, the IT managers find it difficult to efficiently utilize the space and connect the drives to their multi-functional IT environment. Dell LTO2 ultrium solution is the optimal choice, as there are external & internal drives that are space-efficient and feature SCSI LVD ultra-160 interface. This solves your compatibility issues. Next is the need for high data transfer speed, and Dell LTO 2 drives meet this demand as well, while ensuring superior performance. 64MB data buffer enables LTO2 drives to deliver a fast recording speed of 48Mbps. In addition, these drives allow seamless operations in harsh conditions as well that is demanded by the business organizations to take advantage over their competitors.

Scalable roadmap, open standard and consistent performance has established LTO format as a premier backup technology that offers the best total ownership cost. Dell has engineered its LTO ultrium 2 tapes with a new media formulation that has improved the smoothness of its base film and increased its track density. The result is that the drives can perform fast storage operations and reliable restores with sharply reduced media deterioration. So the useful life of drive and tape extends, and the Dell LTO2 customers will enjoy unparalleled performance with a MTBF of 250000 hours. Most importantly, if the storage demands of the business enterprises increase beyond the capacity of Dell LTO2 system, they can enhance their backup system’s performance by migrating to LTO3 generation or higher capacity LTO4 and LTO5 systems. Arm your data center with this durable LTO2 system and cost-effectively deal with the demanding backup challenges
