This time, the latest generation of LTO is bringing more to the table than just speed and capacity. LTFS, as we describe in our recent article "What is LTFS," is a great example of that. In fact, while capacity did see its normal upgrade in this generation, speed was only upgraded slightly. Fear not, speed upgrades will be back on track in generation 6. Holding LTO-5 back a little, but putting LTO-6 back on track, is a smart move by LTO
