- Linear Tape Open. A tape technology developed by IBP, HP and Seagate. LTO
was originally developed as an alternative to DLT. Unlike DLT, LTO uses an open standard.
has generally replaced DLT as a preferred means of tape storage, not least
because of its larger storage capacity.
LTO is available in two different sizes:
- Accelis - which uses an 8mm tape.
- Ultrium - which uses a half inch tape.
