Internal Half-Height LTO Drive for Desktop Thunderbolt 3

The NS722TB3 desktop storage enclosure can transform any internal half-height LTO tape drive to Thunderbolt™ 3, and the Netstor unit has also been considerately created with two SFF-8482 connectors inside to support up to dual LTO tape drives in favor of application. Additionally, newest LTO drives such as LTO-8, LTO-7, and LTO-6 from Quantum, HP, Dell, and IBM are all supported to work with the Netstor LTO desktop enclosure.

Without the need to add an HBA card in the host computer in order to connect with the LTO drive device, now users can simply connect NS722TB3 storage to any Thunderbolt™ 3 macOS/Windows laptop, or all-in-one such as iMac to make LTO archiving available to the Thunderbolt™ 3 host.

Self-installing of LTO tape drive in NS722TB3 is really easy. User only needs to connect one SFF-8482 cable that already includes data signal and power transmission to rear of LTO tape drive to simply complete the installation within Netstor unit. Additionally, according to user’s need, whenever more archiving is needed, a second LTO tape drive can always be added in Netstor at anytime for adding more data storage; mixture of different generation LTO-8, LTO-7, and LTO-6 tape drives is feasible in the desktop NS722TB3 as well.

Providing Extra mini-SAS Port to Workstation

Besides installing LTO tape drives within the desktop NS722TB3 enclosure, Netstor team has thoughtfully designed one extra external mini-SAS port at rear of the LTO storage, being able to add an additional mini-SAS port to your Thunderbolt™ 3 laptop/workstation to allow you to attach freely an extra LTO, external JBOD or RAID storage in support of usage.
