Storage Heaven Launches New TapeMaster

Industry's fastest LTO Ultrium data tape duplication solution fully utilizes 6 Gbps SAS bandwidth

Plantation, FL, January 17, 2017, Storage Heaven (www.storageheaven.com), the industry’s leader in LTO tape duplication, has announced the addition of the new TapeMaster to its premier line of high performance data tape replication solutions.

“Our customers insist on solutions that keep pace with the latest LTO technologies. The new SAS based TapeMaster duplicators offers the fastest replication speeds in the industry, up to 200% faster than its predecessor and provides innovative and cutting-edge technology with the reliability and ease-of-use Storage Heaven is known for,” says Mr. Gordon, VP of Sales and Marketing of Storage Heaven.

The new TapeMaster provides extremely fast duplication speeds approaching 600MB/sec compressed. When you compare native data rates, that's 300MB/sec, which is faster than typical 7200 RPM hard drive (130 MB/sec). “This is an awesome achievement since you can duplicate many LTO tapes in a few hours instead of typically taking days using off-the-shelf software which oftentimes does not make successful copies at all,” mentions Gordon.

The new TapeMaster platform also supports all generations of Linear Tape Open (LTO) Ultrium technology from the original LTO to the latest LTO-7 and is future-proof for next generation LTO as well. Duplication modes include bit-for-bit Copy and Copy-and-Verify mode which automatically performs a bit-for-bit verification immediately after copy process is completed.

To operate the TapeMaster no computer is required. It’s a complete standalone unit with easy to read LCD display and 4-button control panel. These units are appropriate for top-secret government applications since they do not have a built-in hard-disk-drive and do not retain any tape data in the device during or after copy process.

The TapeMaster comes standard with a built-in diagnostic feature that allows the user to quickly and easily check the overall health of the system at any time. Along with the high-performance speeds of 600MB/sec and the ability to duplicate manually from 1-to-1 or 1-to-many targets simultaneously, this advanced solution also comes in a "lights-out" fully automated configuration for users that require 24/7 high volume production.

The TapeMaster is perfect for LTO duplication applications such as software upgrades, content distribution, off-site storage, archiving, digital forensics and data tape migration. The new TapeMaster is available for purchase through international distributors or direct from Storage Heaven.
