FujiFilm announce availability of LTO-6 Data Cartridge

Fujifilm in media, with BaFe magnetic particles ...

Fujifilm Recording Media U.S.A., Inc., a division of Fujifilm Corporation, introduced its new LTO-6 data cartridge.

It's the first in the world produced with barium ferrite magnetic particles using Fujifilm's core Nanocubic technology. Barium Ferrite is chemically stable, which leads to enhanced performance and longer archival life

It offers a compressed (2.5x) storage capacity of 6.25TB with a transfer rate of up to 400MB/s.

Nano Technology
Thse LTO-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, LTO-6 cartridge offers a reduction on its impact on the environment by eliminating brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from all the mechanical parts of 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 an open tape format developed and enhanced by the HP, IBM and Quantum to help address the demands of data protection in the midrange to enterprise-class server environments.

LTO-6 Features
Fujifilm LTO-6 cartridges offer more space to record specific cartridge information, with the introduction of a 16K Cartridge Memory (IC chip). This feature allows the user to record cartridge load/unload history and monitor the cartridge health.

High-rigidity reel design prevents hub deformation, which could result in tape edge damage. This feature is important as the tape length gets longer and thinner.

LTO-6 cartridges with BaFe have a long archival life (over 30 years) and show good performance when used with older drives that have aged from repeated use.

LTO-6 hardware will be backward write compatible with LTO-5 cartridges and backward read compatible with LTO-4 cartridges. As with the previous generation, LTO-6 hardware will incorporate the Advanced Encryption Standard and LTFS dual partitioning functionality.

Fujifilm's line-up will include an LTO-6 WORM cartridge, such as storage compliance standards which require a non-rewriteable format.

Largest LTO Assembly Plant in the World
To meet the growing demands of the LTO industry, Fujifilm has restructured its U.S. manufacturing facility in Bedford, MA to increase the assembly capacity, allowing for flexibility and just-in-time manufacturing. As a result, this facility has become the largest LTO assembly plant in the world.

Fujifilm LTO-6 data cartridges will be available from BackupWorks.com an authorized FujiFilm Partner.
