LTO Ultrium Data Cartridge
For Further Reliable Data Storage, LTO Ultrium Data Cartridge will be the Answer
As database- and Internet-related applications require greater data storage, and critical operations demand minimized downtime due to backup operations, new cost-effective solutions are needed.
High recording density achived thanks to proprietary “Barium Ferrite magnetic particle technology” and “NANOCUBIC technology”
It was the first in the world to commercialize magnetic tapes using “BaFe magnetic particles” in 2011.
As the successor to LTO6, LTO7 also employs “BaFe magnetic particles”. With LTO7 has further developed its proprietary “Barrium Ferrite magnetic particle technology” and “NANOCUBIC technology”, expanding storage capacity to about 2.4 times that of LTO6 at 15.0TB (when data is compressed), and making data transfers approximately 1.9 times faster, reaching 750MB/sec (when data is compressed).
The increase in performance from LTO6 to LTO7 vastly surpasses that of from LTO5 to LTO6.
Enhanced “NANOCUBIC technology”
LTO Ultrium 7 data cartridges use it’s enhanced NANOCUBIC technology, which incorporates three it proprietary technologies.
Nano-particle Technology: Micronizing of uniform Barium Ferrite particles.
Nano-dispersion Technology: Uniform dispersion for nano sized particle.
Nano-coating Technology: Very smooth ultra-thin layer coating to realize an even thinner magnetic layer.
“Barium Ferrite magnetic particles” offer outstanding recording and retrieval performance for long-term storage. The magnetic property remains stable when micronized, and it enables good signal quality with little noise over a wide frequency range. It’s “Barium Ferrite magnetic particles” offer low variance in terms of magnetic properties, offering greater stability, and the ability to reliably store data for over thirty years has been verified. In April 2015, It in cooperation with IBM demonstoraged the potential of achieving a data cartridge with 220 terabytes of uncompressed capacity using an advanced prototype of Barium Ferrite magnetic particles.
LTO Ultrium Servo Technology
LTO Ultrium technology relies heavily on timing-based, high-precision servo control to achieve its remarkable performance levels. LTO Ultrium data cartridge uses dual servo tracks that have been precisely written along the entire length of each of its four data bands, for extremely fine placement control and redundancy in the event of tape damages.
Encrypted for Security
From LTO G4 System, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption algorithms is introduced to keep data secure. The hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption offers higher level of security during storage and transporting of sensitive information.
WORM is also available
WORM (Write Once Read Many) functionality provides a cost-effective means for storing data in non-rewriteable format to help address compliance requirements.
