Spectra Logic introduced the industry's first tape library capable of storing exabytes of uncompressed data using LTO-9 technology
The company Spectra Logic, which calls itself a leader in data storage and data management solutions, announced that it has reached a kind of psychological milestone. Its TFinity ExaScale Tape Library was the first in the industry to store an exabyte of uncompressed data using LTO-9 technology.

The Spectra TFinity tape library, the world's largest storage system, is considered the de facto standard in data-driven computing environments, providing unparalleled storage density, scalability, reliability, and availability with minimal footprint among enterprise-class tape libraries.

LTO-9 technology has increased the capacity per cartridge by 50% compared to LTO-8, and the data transfer rate by 15%. If you go to absolute values, the cartridge volume is 18 TB, and the speed is 400 MB/s. The capacity of LTO cartridges will continue to increase with the release of future generations. So, the capacity of the LTO-10 cartridge is planned to increase to 36 TB, LTO-11 — to 72 TB, and LTO-12 — to 144 TB. According to Spectra Logic, this progress gives users confidence that their investments in tape media are safe, and the unit cost of storage will remain optimal over the entire service life.
