LTO 3 data cartridge with label
IBM is delivering high-capacity media that helps provide clients the ability to address the demanding growth in data storage. The increase in cartridge capacity helps reduce the amount of equipment, space and human intervention required for daily tape operations. In addition, it helps reduce the number of cartridges needed for backup and restore operations and thus lowers operational costs.
