“We are excited to announce two new additions to our lineup of innovative Thunderbolt-enabled solutions at NAB 2014”, said Roger Mabon, CEO of mLogic. “mTape is the first standalone LTO-6 tape drive to feature Thunderbolt connectivity and is the ideal backup and archiving solution for users of laptops and all-in-one computers. LTO tape offers the lowest cost per TB of any storage medium and more importantly has an archival life of 30 plus years - significantly longer than any external hard drive sitting on a shelf.
