LTO Ultrium Tapes
Linear Tape-Open Technology (LTO) was developed jointly by IBM, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and Quantum to provide a clear and viable choice in an increasingly complex array of tape storage options. Their goal was to give users multiple sources for product and media. Working together, each provided expert knowledge of customer needs and complementary technology, delivering a best-of-breed product, promoting a strong foundation for data interchange. Other companies can participate in this tape industry opportunity through the open licensing process.
