ARCHIVAL

Both during a shoot and after your film has been completed, create LTO backups of your media to ensure that it can be safely stored and quickly retrieved at any time. LTO is the industry standard tape technology, and is a safe and reliable way to create a long-term archive of your assets and deliverables. HIJACK currently support LTO-5 right up to LTO-8 providing backup and retrieval rates of up to 750 MB/sec.

Why LTO?

LTO is the industry standard tape technology, and is a safe and reliable way to create a long-term archive of your assets and deliverables. HIJACK currently support LTO-5 right up to LTO-8 providing backup and retrieval rates of up to 750 MB/sec and robust 256-bit AES encryption.

LTO media is cost effective and is significantly less expensive than equivalent disk based solutions. In addition it is also an open format – meaning that LTO drives and tapes from different companies are compatible with each other.

At HIJACK we recommend using the 3-2-1 strategy. This means having at least 3 total copies of your data, 2 of which are local but on different storage mediums (read devices), and at least 1 copy offsite. This ensures maximum safety.
