Sony 3TB LTO Ultrium-5 Data Cartridge LTX1500G
With a compressed storage capacity of 3.0 TB, this new LTO
Ultrium 5 cartridge delivers new functionality to support the ever-increasing
requirements of todays data-rich storage environments. Users can now create two
partitions within the cartridge, addressing both file control and space
management. This feature can help to increase access speed, which is important
for storing rich fiiles. The LTO-5 cartridge adds this feature while still
retaining the hardware-based encryption introduced with LTO-4 technology, which
helps to protect the storage and transport of sensitive information.
Sonys new LTO-5 cartridge further builds on the strong
performance and reliability improvements achieved in previous Sony LTO
generations. Two technologies were developed to achieve these new storage
requirements. The first was a newly enhanced super-fine metal particle, which
leads to more stable write/read characteristics in a variety of usage
environments. The other was a strong binder system with high cross-linking and
abrasion-resistance, which increases the durability of the magnetic layer
helping Sony LTO5 cartridges withstand tens of thousands of passes between the
head and the tape.
The new LT05 cartridge continues Sonys goal to develop
environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. Sony`s LTO cartridge shells
are manufactured with recycled resin made from regenerated polycarbonate
materials disposed by and collected from Sony group companies. This helps Sony
reduce virgin resin usage by 95 tons per year.
