Until now most LTO tape products were generic repurposed IT systems or otherwise design-compromised with low-cost components. With the introduction of SymplyPRO Thunderbolt LTO that’s all changed. SymplyPRO Thunderbolt LTO was designed with professionals in mind. Comprising space-effective single desktop designs and innovative dual-drive desktop systems featuring Symply CableLess technology, making them highly serviceable and upgradeable, SymplyPRO Thunderbolt LTO delivers more.

Each SymplyPRO Thunderbolt LTO desktop utilizes a robust and stylish metal alloy enclosure. And it’s not only rugged – it’s compact and full-featured. With a premium power supply and cooling system, SymplyPRO Thunderbolt LTO is designed for years of trouble-free service. The desktop systems include two Thunderbolt 3 ports for daisy chaining and fast device charging. Uniquely they also include a SAS Expansion Port and SAS Host Port in case you need to connect other SAS devices to your Thunderbolt-equipped computer or use the SymplyPRO Thunderbolt LTO with a non-Thunderbolt workstation with a SAS connection.

3: Always maintain at least three (3) copies of your data.

Symply CableLess

All dual-drive desktop designs from Symply feature Symply CableLess technology – a unique design that allows for the easy removal of LTO drives, making them highly serviceable and easy to upgradeable. So, you can start with one LTO in your desktop system and add an additional drive in a matter of seconds, without even having to power the system off. Likewise for servicing, in the unlikely event of a drive failure, the failed drive can be removed without the need to power off the whole system, and only the failed drive needs to be returned for repair. Simple, as you might expect


As a partner with IBM, SymplyPRO LTO products are fully compatible with software applications that support IBM LTO drive technology. In addition, Symply has carried out extensive interoperability testing with the following popular backup and archive utilities for macOS and Windows including Archiware, Hedge, Imagine Products, Retrospect, StorageDNA, Veeam, XenData, and YoYotta to ensure the best possible customer experience.

Customs, duties & taxes

There are no customs duties or taxes on orders shipping within the EU. Orders shipped outside of the EU may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees collected by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are collected once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be paid for by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; and when customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. We advise that you contact your local customs office for more information.
