Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 6 media is the latest midrange data storage product to use Fujifilm's advanced NANOCUBIC coating process.
Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 6 media is the latest midrange data storage product to use Fujifilm's advanced NANOCUBIC coating process, which incorporates three Fujifilm proprietary technologies:
Excellent read/write property: By adopting Barium Ferrite, Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 6 cartridge has higher coercivity, lower noise compared to older generations. Over time, the recording head of a well-used drives start to wear down leading to a drop in performance. However, since Fujifilm’s LTO Ultrium 6 cartridge with Barium Ferrite, from a system performance point of view, has more margin compared to metal particle tapes (measured using Fuji manufactured tapes), it can be read/written more accurately on these older drives.
As with the previous generation, LTO Ultrium 6 hardware will incorporate the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Linear Tape File System (LTFS) dual partitioning functionality.
NANOCUBIC thin-film coating process to reach the higher capacity and quality levels currently only found in enterprise-class systems.
The LTO technology is a powerful, scalable, adaptable open tape format developed and continuously enhanced to help address the growing demands of data protection in the midrange to enterprise-class server environments. In addition, LTO Ultrium 5 technology offers AES 256-bit encryption capability that increases the performance value of tape storage in terms of security, and reinforces its importance as a reliable high-performance storage solution.
