MagStor TRB-2HL7 Dual LTO7 LTFS Tape Drives with ThunderPro2™ Interface.

Connect to any MAC computer with a Thunderbolt 2 port!


MagStor TRB-2HL7 is a desktop tape-based data storage device utilizing two LTO7 tape drives used for data backups and archives using industry standard backup software.

MagStor is also compatible for use with the Linear Tape File System (LTFS). LTFS works in conjunction with the LTO drives and media technology to make MagStor’s tape drives look like storage devices to the underlying operating system. Once configured, files can simply be copied to and from the LTO tapes just like using a disk drive or USB flash drive.

LTO7 media cartridges hold 6TB of data and have a read/write performance up to 300 MB/sec (uncompressed).

LTFS is an open-standard which means that data stored on LTFS formatted media cartridges can be accessed and used by any tape drive that is LTFS compatible.

MagStor TRB-2HL7 with ThunderPro2™ interface connects to any MAC with a Thunderbolt 2 port using a standard thunderbolt cable. MagStor’s two front-facing ThunderPro2™ ports allows for loop-through to connect other Thunderbolt 2 devices, such as disk-based storage arrays.
