Founded in 2009, Media Technology Market Partners LLC, now doing business as MTMP Solutions, has been a pioneer in taking Linear Tape File System (LTFS) based storage solutions to market. MTMP Solutions has a long association with IBM (the inventor of LTFS), Crossroad Systems (one of the first major manufacturers of an LTFS-based storage product) and The LTO Program (the organization formed by HP, IBM and Quantum to jointly oversee the development and roadmap of Linear Tape Open [LTO] technology). When LTFS was introduced, MTMP shared its resources with the entire media and entertainment industry to create awareness of its benefits. MTMP has shared its resources to support the development of LTFS enabled products by other solution providers.
