Overview

Fujifilm has further developed its unique “NANOCUBIC technology” to produce even smaller BaFe magnetic particles than those used in the LTO 7. The magnetic particles are separated by highly controlled dispersion process and the tape surface roughness is controlled, achieving smooth surface of magnetic layer with enhanced NANO coating technology.
In this way, Fujifilm has increased LTO 8 storage capacity up to 30TB (12TB for non-compressed data), twice the capacity of LTO 7, high speed data transfer reaching 750MB/sec (360MB/sec. for non-compressed data). Furthermore, appropriate material design has allowed for high tracking performance and durability for the magnetic heads in the tape drives, boost reliability showing stable and excellent performance.

Specification

  • Fujifilm LTO 8 Storage capacity up to 12TB per tape (30TB at maximum compression)
  • LTO 8 allows for high speed data transfer at 750MB/sec. (360MB/sec. for non-compressed data)
  • Supplied in individual polycase (SKU: 16551221)

Enhanced “NANOCUBIC technology”

Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 8 data cartridges use Fujifilm's enhanced NANOCUBIC technology, which incorporates three Fujifilm proprietary technologies.

  • Nano-particle Technology: Micronizing of uniform Barium Ferrite particles.
  • Nano-dispersion Technology: Uniform dispersion for nano sized particle.
  • Nano-coating Technology: Very smooth ultra-thin layer coating to realise an even thinner magnetic layer.

Barium Ferrite

“Barium Ferrite magnetic particles” offer outstanding recording and retrieval performance for long-term storage. The magnetic property remains stable when micronized, and it enables good signal quality with little noise over a wide frequency range. Fujifilm's “Barium Ferrite magnetic particles” offer low variance in terms of magnetic properties, offering greater stability, and the ability to reliably store data for over thirty years has been verified. In April 2015, Fujifilm in cooperation with IBM demonstrated the potential of achieving a data cartridge with 220 terabytes of uncompressed capacity using an advanced prototype of Barium Ferrite magnetic particles.

FUJIFILM Servo Technology

LTO Ultrium technology relies heavily on timing-based, high-precision servo control to achieve its remarkable performance levels. LTO Ultrium data cartridge uses dual servo tracks that have been precisely written along the entire length of each of its four data bands, for extremely fine placement control and redundancy in the event of tape damages.

Encrypted for Security

From LTO G4 System, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption algorithms is introduced to keep data secure. The hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption offers higher level of security during storage and transporting of sensitive information.
