T380 Performance

Designed for Enterprise performance, the Spectra tape libraries accommodates the storage requirements of organizations in every stage of their growth lifecycle. With the ability to support LTO or TS1150 tape technologies, the Spectra T380 delivers a storage system that is capable of meeting your organizations every need.

About TS11XX Tape Technology
TS1150-Drive+2-Tapes-Alt2

The TS11XX Technology offers the most reliable tape technology ever developed. Designed to provide Enterprise-Class reliability with 24×7 usage, the TS11XX Technology tape drive provides 1000 times more data integrity than an LTO tape drive. Spectra’s T380 library is the only mid-range library built to handle enterprise tape technology, further extending the flexibility and enterprise features packed into a compact design.

About LTO Technology
LTO technology has become the most used data protection media by organizations that need to store terabytes to petabytes of data. Entering its eighty generation, LTO-8 drives natively store 12TB of data and offer a throughput of 700MB/s.

LTO (Linear Tape-Open) Ultrium Technology is optimized for high capacity and performance with exceptional reliability in either a standalone or an automated environment. Ideally suited for backup and deep storage applications, the LTO tape format can meet the needs of any environment with a roadmap and migration path that extends well into the next decade.

Maximum Software Compatibility
Spectra tape libraries support nearly every software package written for open systems tape, in parallel with Spectra’s Shared Library Services (SLS), to deliver an application integration that maximizes the benefits of your storage, optimizes business results and minimizes time to value. Combining Spectra storage systems and solutions with leading third-party applications can reduce risk, improve efficiency and address data protection concerns — while increasing flexibility through a more robust information infrastructure.

Integrates with your Environment
The T380 is compatible with most channel interfaces and networking protocols, ensuring the best possible data transfer performance. It is also compatible with all industry standard operating systems including Windows, Linux, UNIX and Mac OS, and seamlessly integrates with all major backup software applications.

The T380 provides a choice of connectivity options—either direct-connect Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) or Fibre Channel.
