Desktop SAS LTO Backup & Archiving Solutions

mLogic's Desktop SAS LTO tape drives are affordable and easy to deploy backup/archive solutions designed for small to medium-sized businesses.  Users can keep their data secure on LTO tape cartridges that can be transported off-site for disaster recovery or long-term archiving.  

LTO is unrivaled in terms of cost, reliability, portability and security and plays a critical role in data protection.  Any industry where vast amounts of data are being collected and stored – medical imaging, digital surveillance, oil/gas exploration and video production for example - can benefit from LTO technology. 

Drag and Drop Content with LTFS.

mLogic’s SAS LTO solutions are Linear Tape File System (LTFS) compatible. LTFS is an industry-standard format that mounts an LTO tape cartridge like a hard drive enabling simple drag and drop functionality for file backup and archiving. This eliminates the need for backup software and allows LTO cartridges to be exchanged easily between users, operating systems, and third-party LTFS software applications.
