Do we have a plan to support LTO-8 ? 

My customer bought AFF A700s and Quantum at the same time. 

I couldn'f fine Compatibility, So I need to know when I can get to support file for LTO-8 .

Hi there,

 

LTO-8 support is underway. Please raise a support ticket to find out if a pre-release TCF is available for the drive/adapter/ONTAP you are proposing. Case 2007389084 lists contacts.

 

Please also ensure that the HBA/config you wish to use is supported - the X1134 32Gb FC adapters for the A700s are target only and will not support direct attachment of tape drives.
