The business environment of 21st century is very competitive. Businesses invest millions of dollars to obtain a competitive edge over their competitors. Sometimes this investment is successful and sometimes not. What businesses fail to realize is that can gain an edge over their competitors by fulfilling the customer needs within shorter time frame, which isn’t possible without creating data backups.
Initially the purpose of backup technology was to create a duplicate copy of the important business data. However, things today have changed significantly. Nowadays backup technology is used for more purposes than just storing and securing data. Backup technology is now being used by businesses to enhance the efficiency of the business, which allows it to perform better.
The most advanced version of backup technology is known as Linear Tape Open technology which was created by three great brands of the Information Technology industry, IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Seagate. Linear Tape Open technology was created by the best brands of the industry therefore it is nothing less than perfect. Linear Tape Open technology has allowed the corporate world to reach unimaginable levels of efficiency and success.
The fourth generation of Linear Tape Open technology was launched in April 2007. IBM LTO4 tape media solution has been the first choice of businesses from 2007 till date. The reasons for this preference are simple and clearly stated in the content of this article. First of all IBM 95P4436, LTO4 ultrium tape has remarkable storage capacity. It can store around 800 GB of native data. This backup media system also includes the compression feature which doubles the storage capacity. The storage capacity for compressed data is 1600 GB.
To support such high storage capacity and to allow smooth functioning of the tape, it also features an impressive processing speed. The processing speed for native data is 80 Megabytes’ per second whereas the processing speed for compressed data is 160 Megabytes’ per second. Secondly, the tape drives have the feature of backwards compatibility. This means they can read and write data from the older generations of Linear Tape Open technology, be it, LTO2 or LTO3.
Thirdly, the tape system comes with the encryption feature. This is the most special and unique feature of IBM LTO4 media system. The encryption feature provides high levels of security to the backed up data without the expense on security software. Naturally the encryption feature also reduces the probability of fraudulent activities. Last but not the least, IBM LTO4 tape format is also very economical.
IBM is the best brand, it has been innovating backup technology and making it available to the customers at competitive prices, and this LTO 4 media tape system is no different. It is priced at a reasonable level so more and more business enterprises can benefit from this technology and use it to enhance their business performance.

If your business still hasn’t installed backup technology, then don’t wait any longer because you never know when your precious data might be lost.
