IBM Spectrum Archive™, a member of the IBM Spectrum Storage™ family, gives you 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. 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.

They can reduce backup infrastructure costs with built-in data efficiency capabilities and the ability to migrate or copy data to tape, public cloud services, and on-premises object storage. IBM Spectrum Protect can also store IBM Spectrum Protect Plus data, providing an ability to leverage your existing investment for long-term data retention and disaster recovery.
