Tier 3 is archive storage built for long term energy efficient archiving of essential assets. Much like the financial, government and medical sectors, the media industry has embraced LTO tape as the primary cold storage medium for critical data, with 30 years guaranteed shelf life and large cost effective capacities combined with great transfer speeds.

GB Labs, VAULT LTO allows users to write to multiple tapes at up-to 1200MB/sec simultaneously and archive projects of any size. All the Vault products use unique HyperWrite technology, which intelligently allocates and encapsulates data so that it can be efficiently written to tape, especially beneficial when dealing with thousands of files. When this technology is combined with GB Labs Tier 1 and Tier 2 storage LTO tapes can perform at the highest speeds with any data type and avoid unnecessary wear on the tapes due to scrubbing across the heads.
