Maxell Announces Availability Of LTO Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge With Expanded Storage Capacity To 6.25 TB

WOODLAND PARK, N.J., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxell Corporation of America, the technology leader in data storage and backup media, announces the availability of its LTO Ultrium 6 (LTO 6) data cartridge.  With a faster compressed tape drive transfer rate of up to 400 MB/sec* and increased maximum storage capacity of up to 6.25 TB*, Maxell's LTO6 cartridges address the growing need of AV professionals for cost- and energy-efficient, reliable media solutions for a variety of professional broadcast and video applications.

"Maxell recently completed the LTO Ultrium 6 data cartridge compliance verification process, including an exhaustive series of tests to confirm interchange compatibility with other drives and media," said Pat Byrne, senior marketing manager for Maxell. With the capacity to hold today's large, graphic-intensive files, LTO Ultrium 6 specifically addresses customers with increasing archival and storage needs at an incredible value. Users can rest assured that the Linear Tape File System continues to ensure quick and easy access to files, and can remain confident of the compatibility and interchangeability between Maxell LTO Ultrium media, and all brands of Ultrium drives and media."

LTO 6 features Write Once, Read Many (WORM) functionality and advanced encryption capabilities, making it extremely well suited for backup and archival applications requiring high security, such as legal and medical records, and financial data that must comply with the Sarbanes - Oxley Act. It also incorporates a Linear Tape File System (LTFS), which allows LTO 6 to be used in a manner similar to that of hard disk drives (HDDs). Because LTO 6 is a tape technology, it has inherent advantages compared to HDD, including dramatically lowering energy consumption and reducing storage media costs.

NeoSMART Maximizes LTO 6 TechnologyThe incorporation of Maxell's patented NeoSMART (Super Maximum-capacity Advanced Reliability Tape) technology maximizes the benefits of LTO 6. Ultra-fine ceramic-armored metal particles with high energy and superior recording performance augment the LTO 6 capacity, as well as create an added level of protection from corrosion, for advanced archival storage life and superior durability. Extremely accurate servo writing technologies, which Maxell developed in its manufacturing process, ensure stable servo characteristics and superior tracking reliability, corresponding to increased data track density to achieve the high capacity of LTO 6.

Maxell also developed advanced dispersion and calendaring processes that improve read/write performance, and ensure high output and enhanced stability, complementing the increased recording density. Superior durability and excellent stability – two critical attributes in data storage and archiving – are further enhanced by special lubricant control and advanced filler uniformity developed for the head/tape interface.
