Benefit from Air-Gapped Protection with IBM Tape

Tape remains ideal as a low-cost, high-volume data storage solution. Plus, it offers ways to help mitigate cyber threats such as ransomware through the use of “air-gapping” and keeping a barrier between your data and your network.

The good news is that innovation within the tape-based data storage platform has remained strong and IBM recently announced the release of new Linear Tape Open (LTO) Ultrium Generation 9 technologies and offerings.

With LTO 9, the data stored on each cartridge grows by 50% and performance increases 11%.
