07 Aug 2016 In a tape archive system, how can LTFS and LTO products help? [54893]
SearchDataBackup, July 29th, 2016

"Linear Tape File System and Linear Tape-Open technology can improve user access and durability in your tape archive system. Explore specific products that do the job," suggests Jon Toigo in SearchDataBackup.

"Active archiving products have been pressed forward by library makers, including Spectra Logic. That company has blazed a trail to integrate active archiving directly into the workflow of specific vertical markets, like media and entertainment companies, converting video clips from editing systems into objects and transferring the object buckets directly to tape via an appliance called BlackPearl..."

12 Jun 2014 The Emergence of a New Architecture for Long-term Data Retention [36864]
By David Floyer

"The combination of tape and flash, for large objects/files, is going to offer not only lower costs, but also much higher performance than spinning disk-based alternatives. This changes the dynamics of storage for long-term data retention and so-called big data lakes. The key to this approach will be surfacing metadata, currently buried on tape cartridges, to a flash layer that can signal the location of desired data on the tape. Combined with linear tape file system technology, we believe this approach will deliver better business value for the right use cases.

This contrarian view is a function of: 1) Lack of investment in high speed disk technology, specifically head tech; 2) The far better bandwidth improvements capable with tape relative to spinning disk and 3) The economics of flash relative to disk.

This forecast is not without risks..."

12 Sep 2013 StorageTek Linear Tape File System, Library Edition [32829]
Simple Drag-and-Drop File Management with Tape

Oracle Makes Tape Storage Easy to Use and Manage like Flash and Disk with Drag-and-Drop User Interface for Exabyte Scale Archives

Oracle's StorageTek Linear Tape File System, Library Edition (LTFS LE) helps makes tape storage as easy to use and manage as disk at a lower cost, using a familiar "drag-and-drop" paradigm. It further broadens the appeal of tape storage in industries with large file assets, such as media and entertainment, enabling customers to take advantage of tape's low cost per terabyte for backup, large-scale data retention, archive and preservation projects, while allowing customers to save 40 percent in acquisition cost over IBM's TS3500 20PB Tape Library solution.

10 Jun 2013 Linear Tape File System Slow To Take Hold for General-Purpose Storage [31485]
Search Data Backup, June 4, 2013

"In May, QStar Technologies announced that its QStar Archive Manager and Archive Replicator software now offers support across all tape drives and libraries that are compatible with the Linear Tape File System.

According to QStar, its software allows tape libraries to use the Linear Tape File System (LTFS) within any archiving environment and application. The software can manage data across "tens, hundreds or thousands of pieces of tape media, as a single network share," the company said..."
