recommended LTO6 tape drive

hi there,

I'm trying to decide on what standalone LTO6 drive would be best to purchase to work with our Veeam 8 Enterprise server.
I couldn't seem to find any LTO6 drives on the unofficial supported drives thread.
I was looking at a Tandberg LTO-6 HH tape drive (3534-LTO). Is this likely to work?

Appreciate any advice on this?

Hi,

As it's been mentioned:
<...>as long as, the correct drivers (OEM drivers from device manufacturer) are used and given library/drive is shown properly in Windows Device Manager under correct name (as opposed to generic device), it should work smoothly with Veeam Backup and Replication


Thank you.

Hi Al,
All LTO3 or later tape libraries and standalone drives should work with no issues, including the one you`ve mentioned.
You can search the tape subforum to see what other users think about the particular hardware.
Thanks!
