Until now most LTO tape products were repurposed IT systems or design-compromised. With the introduction of SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount Thunderbolt 3 products, that’s changed. SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount was designed with creatives in mind. Comprising 1RU and 2RU innovative single and dual drive designs featuring Symply CableLess technology, making them highly serviceable and upgradeable, SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount delivers more.

Each SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount utilizes our robust and stylish metal alloy enclosure with dual fans for optimum cooling and premium power supply, it's designed for years of trouble-free service. The Rackmount systems include two Thunderbolt 3 ports for daisy chaining, and fast device charging. They also include a SAS expansion port and SAS host connectivity port in case you need to connected other SAS devices to your Thunderbolt-equipped computer, or use it with a non-Thunderbolt workstation.

All SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount configurations feature Linear Tape File System (LTFS) support. Allowing simple drag and drop file operation similar to a conventional hard drive. LTFS can reduce the need for backup or archive software, and allows users to easily interchange data using LTO cartridges or copying data to and from hard drives or SSDs.

Configurations are available to meet every need and budget from single and dual half height LTO-7 and LTO-8 drives, to the latest full height LTO-9 drives with 18TB raw capacity and read/write speeds up to 400MB/s native. With the SymplyCabless design both the half-height and full-height drives can be removed from transportation and/or storage in optional Symply impact resistant cases.

While SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount hardware is a step above, the included feature rich SymplyATOM (Advanced Tape Operations and Management) software makes operation and maintenance easy. SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount systems are also compatible with popular backup and archive utilities for macOS and Windows including YoYotta LTFS, Hedge Canister, Xendata, Tiger Technology Bridge, Retrospect and Archiware P5.

Whether you are a media professional working on-set production, post production, VFX, independent filmmaking, in-house creative, photography, or education, SymplyPRO LTO Rackmount should be your go-to tape storage.

Additional charges for customs clearance must be paid for by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; and when customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. We advise that you contact your local customs office for more information.
