We’re pleased to announce that Retrospect 10.5 for Windows and Retrospect 12.5 for Mac are now certified for LTO-7 tape devices.

Tape backup remains an essential part of a complete backup strategy and serves as an excellent complement to disk backup. Tape is a cheap, durable storage format that businesses can easily move to off-site locations, so it’s an appropriate destination for a second copy of a backup set or an archive of old content. Retrospect makes it easy to back up directly to tape or transfer an existing disk backup set to a tape set for long-term storage.

LTO-7 is the seventh generation of the LTO format standard, the world’s most popular tape format, with a native capacity of 6TB and a compressed capacity of 15TB. For comparison, LTO-6 had a native capacity of 2.5TB with a compressed capacity of 6.25TB. The LTO-7 format represents a 2.4x increase in data storage. For more information about LTO, visit LTO.org.
