In many ways the Linear Tape File System (LTFS) is my baby. I was the architect of the development work and a primary author of the LTFS Format Specification. I have spent a good deal of time advocating for LTFS including my posts about LTFS on this blog.
Last year I was offered an opportunity to bring more of the LTFS story to light. Jay Livens (Director, Product & Solutions Marketing, Iron Mountain) asked me if I would record some podcasts with him about the development of LTFS. Over the course of a few months we recorded 3 interviews with each session focused on a different aspect of the LTFS development; the Creation, the Technology, and the Future.
The podcasts that came out of these interviews were published today on the Iron Mountain website.
