TDK corporation has been an authority in the progression of data recording media. They often work in partnership with a range of drive manufacturers during the initial tape and cartridge design phases to produce the best possible products for each recording format.
TDK LTO 6 Performance
As indicated by the term “big data”, the vast volume of data handled by data storage systems is expected to massively inflate, requiring higher-capacity and faster data systems. Luckily, TDK LTO Ultrium 6 delivers a capacity of 2.5 TB native 6.25 TB compressed (2.5:1 ratio) and a transfer rate of 160 MB/s native 400 MB/s compressed. TDK LTO 6 is an ideal data storage solution for high-speed, high-capacity servers in the current age of large data volumes.
TDK LTO Ultrium 6 Reliability
The TDK LTO 6 cartridge includes leading-edge magnetic material and tape technologies that TDK has collected through the innovation of several magnetic storage media. The LTO Ultrium 6 format realizes steady read and write signals by means of high-output, ultrafine metal particles designed explicitly for LTO Ultrium. It also features ultra-thin, dual-layer tape coating that regulates the depth of the magnetic layer on the nanometer order, as well as a special servo-writer used to write high-precision servo signals.
Due to these innovative features and technologies, the TDK LTO-6 tape is a highly robust and reliable data storage medium that exceeds current needs for high capacity and high speed storage solutions.
