Symply, a leader in media-centric shared storage solutions, has announced the world’s first Thunderbolt 3 and SAS enabled LTO-9 Half Height desktop and rack storage devices.

With the broadest portfolio of LTO solutions in the market, including a compact half-height LTO-9 SAS Desktop, the new products level up LTO archiving workflow in media, IT and research pipelines with advanced connectivity, a unique feature set, and a dedicated software toolkit.

This product launch follows Symply’s launch of LTO-9 Full Height drives that are already in use worldwide. Symply has been working on a lineup of LTO-9 Half Height drives as part of its SymplyFIRST product family, providing an alternative to its Full Height counterparts where the additional performance and reliability of Full Height drives is not required by its customers.
