Fujifilm’s LTO Ultrium 6 media is the first in the world produced with Barium Ferrite magnetic particles using Fujifilm’s core NANOCUBIC technology for a thin and uniformly coated magnetic layer.
LTO Ultrium 6 Overview
The LTO Ultrium 6 cartridge offers a super high compressed (2.5x) storage capacity of 6.25TB with a transfer rate of up to 400 megabytes per second.
Nano TechnologyFujifilm LTO Ultrium 6 data cartridges use Fujifilm’s advanced NANOCUBIC coating process, which incorporates three Fujifilm proprietary technologies:
Nano-particle Technology: Finer particles (30% smaller than metal particle used on LTO-5)
Nano-dispersion Technology: Uniform particle dispersion by applying high-dispersed binder.
Nano-coating Technology: Improved ultra-thin layer coating to realize an even thinner magnetic layer.
As part of Fujifilm’s overall commitment to develop environmentally sustainable products, Fujifilm’s LTO Ultrium 6 cartridge offers a reduction on its impact on the environment by eliminating brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from all the mechanical parts of Fujifilm LTO-6 cartridges. Tape is already viewed by many in the data storage industry to have less of an impact on the environment than other storage options because it consumes less energy.
LTO technology is a powerful, scalable, adaptable open tape format developed and enhanced by the Technology Provider Companies (TPC) – HP, IBM and Quantum – to help address the growing demands of data protection in the midrange to enterprise-class server environments.
