Default Anybody using Ultrium drives for backup ?

Just considering what could be a definitive solution to backup, especially with 96k sessions coming ! Also considering Exabyte Mammoth M2. Anyone ?
System details :
ProTools Native card, Ultimate 2019.5, MacPro 5,1 12 Core 3.33GHz, 64Gb RAM, Mojave 10.14.4, Lynx Aurora(n), Raven MTi

Hey Bro.

The AIT 8mm is still the standard out there for tape backup. AITs will be around for a long time, and are consistently reliable. The AIT-1 is 35GB per tape (uncompressed), transfers at 240MB/min. The AIT-2 is 50GB per tape, 360MB/min. The AIT-3 is 100GB, 720MB/min. At Glyph, we will provide DLTs, Mammoths, Ultriums, etc, when requested for a particular application or need, but we reccommend the AIT in all ProTools related backup, using either Retrospect or Mezzo backup software. I hope this was helpful... feel free to contact me for more details.
Take Care,
