IBM has a commitment to developing reliable and innovative features. The company gives the assurance that IBM LTO cartridges provide the highest data integrity and reliability as per your business needs while offering support for other crucial needs like quick access to data and data encryption. IBM prides in over 60 years of experience in the manufacture and supply of tape media for data storage. IBM Ultrium LTO 5 tapes are available as custom as well as RFID-imbedded and blank cartridges.
The Ultrium LTO generation 5 has several stringent specifications, which include:
Thorough Testing And Optimization: IBM Ultrium LTO 5 is designed to handle all the demands for everyday use. The LTO tapes feature maximized performance and high reliability to suit your business needs.
3.0 TB (With 2:1 Compression) Tape Capacity In A Single Cartridge: The high tape capacity eliminates the necessity for manual intervention during tape operations. It is, therefore, a great way of saving your IT staff time and cost. The high capacity also reduces the amount of physical storage necessary for backup cartridges.IBM designed this high capacity LTO tape to give organizations control over their increasing storage growth and the cost requirements that come with archiving and backup.
Write Once, Read Many (WORM) capabilities: The WORM feature allows the Ultrium LTO 5 tapes to have a safe and long-term data retention capability. It also makes it possible for the tape to comply with all regulations pertaining data retention. All tape models support computer data encryption standards. The LTO hardware encryption is in line with the WORM media, which allows it to maintain data integrity. Besides, the WORM cartridges have a different color tone, which distinguishes them from standard cartridges.
Burgundy Standard Color: All IBM Ultrium LTO 5 tapes have burgundy as their standard color, which distinguishes the generation 5 from other IBM LTO Ultrium generations.
It Is Designed To Adhere To The Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Standard: The IBM Ultrium LTO 5 data cartridge is compatible with all products that feature the LTO Generation 5 technology. The cartridge will provide value for your business even as your infrastructure and storage needs grow.
They Feature An LTO Cartridge Memory (LTO-CM) Chip: The Ultrium LTO 5 tapes have LTO-CM chips, which allow for fast sharing of data that is cartridge-dependent. The tapes help speed up both load and unload cycles.
Helps Improve Read/Write Reliability: The IBM Ultrium LTO 5 tapes store IBM’s statistical read/write analysis when using the cartridges with the IBM LTO tape drives. This improved read/write reliability gives you the assurance of maximum data protection.
The Tape Is Green: IBM Ultrium LTO 5 tapes provide the ideal green data storage solution. The tapes are environmentally friendly, and they do not require any power at rest. This design allows for long data retention. Therefore, the tapes have a lower media cost for every GB.
They Feature A New Dual Media Partitioning Capability: You can partition your IBM Ultrium LTO 5 tapes. This feature enhances space management and file control. Dual-partitioning enhances the performance of time-encoding applications and also supports future innovations by IBM.
Technology is quickly on the rise, which calls for maximum agility and speed, especially when dealing with data backup. IBM Ultrium LTO 5 data cartridges provide a fast, secure, and flexible means for storing all your sensitive data.
