Featuring 1.5TB of native storage (3.0TB of compressed storage) and data transfer rates of up to 280MB/second, Imation Ultrium LTO 5 tape cartridges provide key improvements over prior tape generations. Enhancements in servo technology and increased data compression ensure the same length of tape can store more information, enabling IT managers to accommodate growth in primary storage without expanding the data center’s footprint.

Ultrium LTO 5 tape cartridges also include a new partitioning functionality that lets users see what information is stored on the tape. This feature enables nearline applications to index data and allows for faster searches via enhanced file control and space management.

Robust Cartridge Construction
The patented corner snap keeps the leader pin in place and the cartridge tightly closed to prevent error-causing debris from entering the cartridge, thus helping to ensure that the tape flows evenly for maximum read/write capability.

The unique three-piece tape spool design distributes stress more evenly over the tape compared to two-piece spools. This cartridge construction keeps the tape flat, helping protect data across the entire tape.

Exceptional Performance and Quality
A proprietary servo-writing process optimizes tape tracking and helps ensure accurate read/write operations, enabling best-in-class Position Error Signal (PES) performance to minimize servo off-track errors and improve overall transfer rates.

Partitioning
Only available in Ultrium LTO 5 tape cartridges, a new partitioning functionality facilitates enhanced file control and space management to meet growing needs of the marketplace.

Security and Protection
Ultrium LTO 5 drives are the second generation to offer hardware-based 256-bit data encryption, providing the highest level of security without any loss of performance; WORM (Write Once  Read Many) cartridges are also available.
