Quantum LTO-7 Backup Tapes (Labeled with M 8)

In stock


The Quantum LTO-7 Backup Tapes labeled with M8, with the product code MR-L7MQN-B8, are high-quality storage media designed for data backup and archiving. These tapes belong to the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) technology, specifically the seventh generation (LTO-7).

The MR-L7MQN-B8 tape cartridges offer a native storage capacity of 6 terabytes (TB) and can store up to 15 TB of compressed data with a 2.5:1 compression ratio. This substantial storage capacity allows for efficient backup and long-term archival of large amounts of data.

The tapes are labeled with M8, indicating that they are optimized for the LTO-7 Type M8 technology. The M8 designation refers to specific enhancements made to the LTO-7 technology, such as increased storage capacity and improved data transfer rates.

The Quantum LTO-7 Backup Tapes are designed to deliver fast and reliable data transfer rates. They support native data transfer rates of up to 300 megabytes per second (MB/s) and can achieve speeds of up to 750 MB/s with compression. This high transfer rate ensures quick backup and restore operations, minimizing downtime and optimizing data management workflows.

The tape cartridges are built with durability in mind, featuring a robust construction that protects the physical integrity of the tape and the data stored on it. They are designed to withstand various environmental factors and handling demands, ensuring reliable performance and long-term data preservation.

Additionally, the Quantum LTO-7 Backup Tapes incorporate advanced error correction techniques to maintain data integrity during read and write operations. This helps minimize the risk of data loss or corruption, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the stored information.

It's important to note that the tapes labeled with M8 are compatible with LTO-7 Type M8 tape drives. However, they are also backward compatible with LTO-6 drives, allowing for seamless integration into existing backup infrastructures without the need for immediate hardware upgrades. They are not compatible with earlier-generation drives such as LTO-5 or LTO-4.

In summary, the Quantum LTO-7 Backup Tapes labeled with M8 (MR-L7MQN-B8) offer high-capacity, fast, and reliable data storage for backup and archiving purposes. With their substantial storage capacity, fast data transfer rates, durability, and compatibility with LTO-6 and LTO-7 Type M8 drives, these tape cartridges are well-suited for organizations seeking efficient and secure long-term data storage and protection.
