Backup Software
Quantum tape drives now include DATASTOR Shield backup software with deduplication to supercharge your backup. Quantum and DATASTOR have teamed up to provide the first backup with deduplication straight to tape. This technology, which reduces backups significantly (up to 20X), allows you to store more data per tape than competitive models.

LTFS (Linear Tape File System)
New LTFS functionality allows customers to simply drag and drop files to LTO-7 as they would to a hard drive or USB drive using Linear Tape File System (LTFS) software. This eliminates the need for backup software and allows the information written to tape to be exchanged easily between different users, operating systems, and software. This is highly beneficial for many applications including media and entertainment, geospatial imaging, other video and imaging applications, long-term archiving, and other applications where removing the dependence on a proprietary format is important. LTFS is compatible with Windows, Linux and Apple Macintosh. LTFS Version 2.0 or higher is required for LTO-7 (Linux, Mac, and Windows).  Download Quantum LTFS Software
