Get Quote

While considered obsolete technology having now been superseded by no less than three generations of LTO technology, the LTO-3 External Tape Drive will still prove useful to those looking to back up a moderate amount of data to extremely robust storage media with an expected shelf life of 15-30 years or those looking to restore media previously backed up on LTO-3 or older LTO hardware.

Scenario’s leading to rental of the LTO-3 External Tape Drive typically involve a user having a need to restore data from archived backups and no longer having access to the hardware used to create them either due to it having been retired or having developed a fault through lack of use. Hire Intelligence maintains a fleet of LTO and other types of Tape backup hardware to assist in these situations.

Connectivity on the LTO-3 External Tape Drive is via Ultra160 SCSI2 and a 68pin HD cable which is included with the rental. For situations where connectivity is unavailable, Hire Intelligence also has a range of Host Bus Adapters available to rent allowing connection to any PC or server which will accept a PCI-X or PCI Express card.
