LTO8 Media / Cartridge Shortage
on Sep 11, 2018 at 3:25:28 pm

Hey all,

Just a warning that production on LTO8 media / cartridges has stopped temporarily. There is a lawsuit between Sony and Fujifilm, and the tapes aren't being made until the lawsuit gets resolved apparently.

If you're currently using LTO8, I would recommend stocking up on cartridges.

I stockpiled all the remaining tapes I could find for my customers, but everyone else may be in a pickle.

The case has been delayed until March 25th due to government shutdown.

Looks like the legal dispute is over as companies Sony and Fujifilm have both agreed to stop arguing, however, they will both need to get their respective LTO8 media certified and it will take months before the backlog can be cleared, there's also a comment that if LTO9 hits at the end of the year as expected then people might just give LTO8 a miss altogether.
