Reduce complexity with an icon-based view of the data on tape, using the operating system file manager.
IBM Spectrum Scale and ESS integration
Gain scalable, enterprise-class management and faster I/O and transactional performance with IBM Spectrum Scale and ESS integration.
Tiering storage for data lakes
Create operational storage tiers to reduce storage expense for data that does not need the access performance of primary storage.
Expand archive capacity without impacting data availability.
Flexible data sharing
Access file data from any operating system so you can easily share data across platforms.
Easy data access
Access data without a database, without the need for proprietary software. You can also access data any time, anywhere from a single Global Namespace.
Data storage efficiencies
Change the economics of storage with a layer of intelligent software that creates an efficient data footprint that dynamically stores all data at the optimal cost, helping maximize performance and ensuring security.
Application interface utilization
Utilize a basic read and write interface to the tape cartridge for applications without any additional operating system enhancements such as plug-ins or service packs.
Eliminate the need for an external database for access to files or creation of files. The LTFS format enables the exchange of files more easily between users working in different operating systems, using different software and in different locations.
