LTO 8 Tape
LTO Ultrium 8 Tapes
LTO 8 tapes have an uncompressed storage capacity of 12TB and a compressed capacity of up to 30TB. LTO 8 tapes more than double the capacity of LTO 7 tape. Additionally, LTO-8 tape drive technology increased the tape head channel count from 16 to 32. This increase provides a higher data transfer rate, resulting in a reduction of approximately 50% of the time to read or write a full tape.
