mTape Thunderbolt 3 LTO-6 with YoYottaID
LTO made easy. Just connect to a computer with a Thunderbolt port. mTape revolutionises LTO, empowering users to easily connect LTO technology to portable, desktop and all-in-one computers that feature Thunderbolt connectivity. Dead simple. Another mLogic first.
Feature Thunderbolt 2 connectivity, a native storage capacity of 6TB per tape and a data transfer rate of up to 300 MB/second. mTape and mRack support LTFS for drag and drop functionality and are compatible with archiving software from Archiware, Imagine Products, StorageDNA, TOLIS, Xendata, YoYotta and others.
YoYottaID LTFS Archiving Software
Track assets from production to post. YoYottaID LTFS creates archives to LTO-6 tapes with mTape or mRack. YoYottaID names, formats, mounts and repairs tape archives. YoYottaID remembers the contents of every tape created so later on you can search to find the location of shots. YoYottaID LTFS also enables simultaneous archiving to two LTO-6 tapes for the ultimate in data security.
The software takes advantage of the Linear File Transfer System (LTFS) developed by IBM. LTFS mounts a tape as a volume (hard disk) within OSX. This makes it possible to write and read from the tape as if it were a disk without proprietary software or formatting. All copies are verified using MD5 checksum integrity algorithms.
