Until the advent of LTFS (Linear Tape File System), it was physically impossible to randomly navigate a tape cartridge to locate a specific file or object.
Now, tape behaves similarly to disk - but is more beneficial than today's other disk alternatives. Tape provides lower total cost of ownership, better reliability, longer life, faster streaming performance and significantly lower energy costs.
This white paper explores LTFS technology and delves into LTFS vs. traditional tape systems, best practices for maximizing benefits, the future of tape and much more!
