Since the LTO-4 wave is starting (I've gotten two calls from vendors
this week), anyone heard any news about Legato support for it? Also,
anyone know what type of box would be needed to drive it? I'm thinking
about a Sun X4100M2 with two dual-core processors, 4GB ram, and 2 x 4GB Fibre Channel cards (one connected to each tape drive) for each storage
node. Anyone?
The official word from EMC is that LTO-4 support will come in Q3,
2007 with NetWorker 7.3.3. This LTO-4 support will not include that
device's encryption feature.
By the way, NetWorker 7.3.3 will also officially support Mac OS X on
Intel hardware.
