Quantum's LTO-5 Half Height (HH) tape drives deliver tremendous capacity and performance at an affordable price. In addition, they use less power on average than LTO-4 drives, making a "greener" and more energy efficient solution.

The drive uses the latest industry-standard interface-6 Gb/sec Serial Attached SCSI (SAS)-to allow for easy installation and integration into your data center. Quantum's LTO-5 HH tape drives also protect your investment by providing backward read and write compatibility with LTO-4 media and backward read compatibility with LTO-3 media.

And with Quantum's LTO-5 drives, you can be assured of security with hardware-based AES 256-bit data encryption, allowing for the highest level of security without any loss of performance during the encryption process. In addition, LTO-5 is WORM capable when used with LTO WORM data cartridges. And the new partitioning functionality enables the tape to be formatted so it can be treated like a hard disk - perfect for video, imaging, CAD/CAM and other large file applications.
