Superior performance in
tape technology for
reliability and versatility


LTO (Ultrium), the most popular tape technology, is a high-performance tape technology offering versatility, reliability and performance.

When it comes to LTO, Overland-Tandberg is your go-to-source for protecting, backing up and archiving your business-critical data. Our LTO tape drives protect your server data by providing simple, affordable backup, archive and disaster recovery.

With superior performance and capacity, and available in both internal and external configurations, Overland-Tandberg LTO Ultrium tape drives are ideal for backing up and archiving data on single workstations or small networks. Features such as 256-bit Advanced Encryption
Standard (AES) ensure that data contained on the cartridges is secure for archiving and off-site transportation.

Our Linear Tape File System (LTFS) functionality, available since we shipped LTO-5, enables users to easily drag and drop files to tape just as they would with disk drives. Compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac OS environments, LTFS functionality eliminates the need for backup software and provides ease of data exchange between users.
