IBM Spectrum Archive, a member of the IBM Spectrum Storage family, enables direct, intuitive and graphical access to data stored in IBM tape drives and libraries by incorporating the Linear Tape File System (LTFS) format standard for reading, writing, and exchanging descriptive metadata on formatted tape cartridges.
IBM Linear Tape File System (LTFS) provides direct, intuitive and graphical access to data stored on Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 6 or 5 tape cartridges, as well as IBM 3592 tape cartridges. It eliminates the need for additional tape management and software to access data.
Spectrum Archive eliminates the need for additional tape management and software to access data. Spectrum Archive offers three software solutions for managing your digital files with the LTFS format: Single Drive Edition, Library Edition, and Enterprise Edition.
