Demand your LTO system uses HyperWrite!
GB Labs developed the HyperWrite technology to significantly reduce the time it takes to write to tape, while extending the life of your LTO tape and drive. Typical LTO systems pause after each file is written without optimisation. This means that typical LTO systems can take all day to finish a single job. By using HyperWrite, GB Labs crushes long write times by writing at native LTO speeds of up to 360MB/s even with small files. By intelligently optimising how we write to tape, there is a massive reduction in the wear to the LTO tape itself as well as the drive. If you need a truly professional and safe system to use in your archiving process EasyLTO with HyperWrite is the only choice.
NOW THAT IS REAL PERFORMANCE.

GB Labs, Intelligent Storage to Power and Protect your creative projects.
Typical LTO systems fail to deliver on the promise of LTO-6, LTO-7 or LTO-8 because they just can't write to the tape fast enough or from a variety of sources at the same time. You end up spending most of your time babysitting the archiving process. EasyLTO fixes all of that!
EasyLTO with SmartBackup is optimised not only to write at native LTO-8 speeds but to do so from multiple sources at the same time when you include SmartBackup. Have a USB3 or DAS storage? Plug it straight into the back and transfer data at top speeds without impacting the network. It's that easy.
