Backup and archive your data to the tape cartridge format using the black LTO Ultrium 6 Tape Cartridge from Maxell. Designed for use with broadcasting and data storage fields, this tape features a native storage capacity of 2.5TB, a 2.5:1 compressed storage capacity of 6.25TB, a native data transfer speed of up to 160 MB/s, and a 2.5:1 compressed data transfer rate of up to 400 MB/s.
Maxell uses their patented NeoSMART (Super Maximum-capacity Advanced Reliability Tape) to help maximize the benefits of LTO 6. Ceramic-armored metal particles with high energy and strong recording performance help increase the capacity of the LTO 6, as well as create additional protection from corrosion, which helps increase archival storage life and overall durability. Servo writing technologies help enable stable servo characteristics and increased tracking reliability, corresponding to increased data track density which helps the LTO 6 achieve overall increased data capacity.
NeoSMART also helps create advantages for IT and data professionals, as it uses a basefilm with dimensional stability to help ensure reliability for high-density recording and playback, as well as archival storage. It also has a uniform, thin sub-micron coating and calendaring process to achieve high output and stability for read/write performance. A built-in 16kB memory chip stores historical usage records and enables high-speed data searches. This chip is also used by Maxell Cartridge Memory Analyzers to diagnose drive and tape abnormalities.
