The World's First desktop tape drive with a SAS 8644 interface!
MagStor SAS-HL8-8644 LTO8 8644 HH SAS External Tabletop Tape Drive
The MagStor SAS-HL8-8644 is an LTO8 12TB SAS tape drive in a sleek and stackable desktop enclosure. MagStor tape drives are made with only the best components; including LTO tape drives made in Japan, and enclosures engineered for exceptional longevity.
You expect your drive to work the first time, and we do too. Our LTO drives are tested at our factory to the highest standard, not once, but twice, as we test the drives again once they've been assembled into a complete product.
Using LTO tape for backup or archive is cost-effective, Eco-friendly, and safe from online attackers, all while taking advantage of LTO tape's 30-year shelf life.
LTFS (Linear Tape File System) makes Archiving to tape now easier than ever. Users can easily drag and drop files to and from an LTO tape with the peace of mind that LTFS is open source and you can access your files in the future no matter what software you choose.
Traditional backups to tape are still commonplace with TAR software. MagStor LTO drives are compatible with any TAR backup system that works with IBM-based tape drives.
