Archiware Releases P5 Version 6.1 with LTFS as Native Archive Format on LTO
By: Archiware GmbH
Archiware's new approach removes the need for the open-source 'FUSE' software used by competitors. This allows direct control of the tape media, while maintaining full ISO/IEC compatibility. Users wishing to archive data to tape, with full indexing, searching, thumbnail generation, and meta-data ingest can now choose between the P5 Native and LTFS format. This is highly beneficial where interoperability with non-Archiware systems is required.
Archiving to LTFS-formatted tapes using the P5 Archive module is supported on all operating systems. Archiware is the only vendor to offer support for FreeBSD of LTFS-formatted LTO tapes for Archive.
Archiware P5 version 6.1 is now available as an upgrade or free, fully featured 30-day trial on the Archiware website: http://p5.archiware.com/
