LTO stands for Linear Tape Open and was developed by the LTO Consortium. The LTO Consortium was initially made up of IBM, HP and Seagate (later renamed Certance). Quantum bought the rights to Seagate (Certance) and is now part of the consortium. They set the standards for future development of the LTO family of tapes.
