PIVOTSTOR OPEN SOURCE LTFS SOFTWARE

The PivotStor Open Source LTFS Software, which is an implementation to aid the use of the Linear Tape File System (LTFS). LTFS makes tape self-describing, file-based, easy-to-use, and allow users to use standard file operations on tape media to access, manage, and share files with an interface that behaves like a hard disk. You can also share data across platforms by using LTFS, as you would with a USB drive or memory stick.

Features

The following are some of the main features supported by the HPE LTFS:
· Allows you to use LTO media as a disk.
· Based on Open Source LTFS software with Graphical User Interface (GUI) components added for usability.
· Precompiled application versions provided for supported platforms.
· Source code available for the open source LTFS software.
· Supported on Microsoft Windows.
· Supports mounting two tape drives concurrently.
· ‘LTFS smart copy’ utility for efficient data transfer from tape to disk.
Intended usage:
· Pivotstor LTFS Software is designed to work best in a single-user environment, where only one user is copying files to or from the tape. Multiple users or processes trying to write 4 Introduction or read at the same time will result in poor performance because of the sequential access nature of tape.
· For the same reasons, do not share the tape drive between different systems. A single tape drive must be connected to a single host bus adapter (HBA).
· The expected usage model is to transfer large files between systems, by mounting the tape on one system, writing the files, unmounting, mounting on the second system, and reading the files. Treating the tape volume as a true random access device (for example frequently reading and updating individual files) will not perform as well as streaming large files to and from tape.
