Description

OWC Mercury Pro LTO 8 Thunderbolt Tape Storage/Archiving Solution with 12TB HDD
 
Preserve Huge Volumes of Data
 
M&E professionals, corporations, government branches, and small businesses are all facing the same challenge: how to manage an ever-increasing amount of more complex data. Higher resolution, complex audio, and diverse formats are the project norm. Organizational content is projected to grow 50-70% annually as more data is digitalized. Licensing, regulatory, and compliance requirements are becoming more stringent.
 
The OWC Mercury Pro LTO is the answer to this challenge. This easily integrated tape backup and archiving solution is a mission-critical requirement for protecting and preserving huge volumes of data for longer periods with familiar drag-and-drop operation, and better economies of scale than disk-based storage. Ruggedly small with a built-in handle, the Mercury Pro LTO is able to go on-set or move among studio, department, or office computers for a shared data protection solution.
 
Archiving Made Drag and Drop Easy
 
There’s a priceless convenience of familiarity in using the OWC Mercury Pro LTO to protect your data. By using archiving industry standard Linear Tape Open (LTO) tapes formatted with the Linear Tape File System (LTFS), the tapes can be accessed on your computer just like a hard drive or SSD. Files appear in folders and moving them to and from tape is drag-and-drop easy. Compatibility has never been simpler. Thanks to LTFS, LTO tapes can be read from a Mac, PC, or Linux system so there’s no extra software to buy or proprietary hardware concerns.
 
Advanced Yet Future-Ready
 
Because LTFS is an open, cross-platform system, and LTO tape is the dominant archiving medium that has continued to advance since being introduced in 2000, you can be confident knowing you'll be able to access your data with any brand of LTO hardware for decades to come. The Mercury Pro LTO uses the latest 12TB LTO-8 tapes, the previous generation 6TB LTO-7 tapes, and is designed to use future release LTO-9 drives.
Plus, the pre-installed HDD enables you to copy data and projects as a staging area and then transfer to the LTO tape for efficient, consolidated large single copies.
 
Instant ROI
 
Compared to using hard drives for archival storage, the OWC Mercury Pro LTO offers an instant ROI, and pays for itself in no time by continually and dramatically lowering project and production costs.
 
120TB of Footage Data from One Action Movie Shot
  • 10 x 12TB HDDs @ $300/drive = $3000
  • 10 x 12TB LTO-8s @$135/tape = $1350 (55% lower cost)
  • 20 x 6TB HDDs @ $120/drive = $2400
  • 20 x 6TB LTO-7s @$56/tape = $1120 (53% lower cost)
That’s over 50% savings vs HDD-based archive storage on just one project!

Notes

  • Installation of the myLTO application, the Mercury LTO SAS driver, and related components are required before use and require a restart.
  • To learn more about myLTO please visit the online manual.
  • To prevent data loss on the LTO drive when the computer goes into sleep mode, the LTO drive and HDD/SSD will stay powered on as long as the power switch is in the ON position. For this reason, you may occasionally hear sounds from the LTO drive during computer sleep.
  • To understand the various status codes the drive may display, visit this page.
  • For additional usage notes including notes on data protection, please review the full Assembly Manual & User guide (linked in the Includes section).
