LTO Ultrium Data Cartridge

FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium 7 Data Cartridges (“LTO7”): Meeting 7th generation “LTO (Linear Tape Open) Ultrium standards” for magnetic tape media, Ultrium 7 Data Cartridge will allow for backup and archive of large volumes of data, high-speed data transfer at 750 MB/sec. ( 300 MB/sec. for non-compressed data), and offer a storage capacity of 15.0 TB ( 6.0 TB for non-compressed data). LTO7, with its high capacity and capability to store data for over 30 years, is optimal for economically storing large quantities of “cold data”- data that is seldom accessed as time passes- over the long term.

LTO Ultrium 7

Fujifilm's LTO Ultrium 7 media is produced with Barium Ferrite magnetic particles using Fujifilm's core NANOCUBIC technology for a thin and uniformly coated magnetic layer.

The Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 7 data cartridge offers a super high native/compressed storage capacity of 6.0/15.0TB, transfer rates up to 300/750MB per second.


Barium Ferrite Technology


Fujifilm's LTO 6 and future generations of LTO will use Barium Ferrite particles with NANOCUBIC technology for a thin and uniformly coated magnetic layer.

  • Barium Ferrite is a new type of magnetic particle which can be greatly reduced in size to improve recording density without magnetic signal loss.
  • Barium Ferrite is already used and proven in enterprise products such as StorageTek's T10000C tape cartridge.
  • This is Fujifilm's patented technology!

As part of Fujifilm’s overall commitment to develop environmentally sustainable products, Fujifilm’s LTO Ultrium 7 cartridge offers a reduction on its impact on the environment by eliminating brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from all the mechanical parts of Fujifilm LTO-7 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) – Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM and Quantum – to help address the growing demands of data protection in the midrange to enterprise-class server environments.


Features


Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 7 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 easily monitor the cartridge health.

Fujifilm’s unique high-rigidity reel design prevents hub deformation, which could result in tape edge damage. This feature is particularly important as the tape length gets longer and thinner.

In addition, Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 7 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 Generation 7 hardware will be backward write compatible with LTO Ultrium 6 data cartridges and backward read compatible with LTO Ultrium 5 data cartridges. As with the previous generation, LTO Ultrium 7 hardware will incorporate the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Linear Tape File System (LTFS) dual partitioning functionality.

Fujifilm’s newest line-up will include an LTO Ultrium 7 WORM cartridge for Write-Once Read-Many applications, such as data storage compliance standards which require a non-rewriteable format.

  • High capacity and amazing transfer rates
  • Capacity: 15.0TB (Compressed) / 6.0TB (Native)
  • Dual partitioning capability
  • LTFS feature in LTFS enabled drives & systems
  • Transfer speed: 750MB/second (Compressed); 300MB/second (Native)

LTO Universal Cleaning Cartridge

For use on all LTO Ultrium 7, LTO Ultrium 6, LTO Ultrium 5, LTO Ultrium 4, LTO Ultrium 3, LTO Ultrium 2 and most LTO Ultrium 1 drives*.​

Fujifilm LTO Universal Cleaning Cartridges are equipped with a computer memory chip (just like the data tape). The chip stores various information and it has an embedded code that is recognized by the compatible drive's firmware. Once the cleaning cartridge is used to capacity (15 - 50 uses, drive dependent), the drive will no longer accept the cleaning tape and will eject the tape, prohibiting further use.


Features


  • Compatible with LTO Ultrium drives
  • Equipped with a computer memory chip
  • Number of cleanings per cartridge is drive dependent (maximum 50 cleanings)
