Safe & Secure

Offline storage and high portability allows for remote storage against disasters and other risk.

Long-term Storage

Magnetic tape has lower failure and error rates, resulting in higher reliability than hard disks.

High Capacity

The recording density of magnetic tape is still increasing and will continue to do so.

Low Cost

Magnetic tape does not require power, making it an economical choice.

LTO ULTRIUM 8

The Best Storage Solution for Archiving Large Volumes of Data

750 MB/sec high-speed data transfer and 360 MB/sec for non-compressed data

Increased areal recording density due to the BaFe particles dramatically boosts the tape’s storage capacity

Offers superior cost performance as compared to hard drives

30 TB Storage Capacity (12TB for non-compressed data)

Made with BaFe, the magnetic LTO tape offers stable data storage for more than 50 years

Reduces the risk of data loss due to cyberattacks and keeps your data safe by isolating your data from the network.

PROMISING FUTURE OF MAGNETIC TAPE

Tape Storage That Only Gets Better With Time

Recording capacity of magnetic tape = recording area x areal recording density. While HDDs are reaching the physical limit of its recording size, magnetic tape still has a lot of room for expansion. The magnetic tape is still evolving, with enhanced reliability and operating durability with each generation.

Magnetic tapes are expected to achieve even greater capacity increase. At present, a roadmap toward 144TB (LTO 12) is planned for LTO tapes.

Large Hollywood Post Production Firm
Large Hollywood Post Production Firm

SITUATION: The firm needed to create a reliable long term archive from XDCam disks that were being used to capture live reality TV. The XDCam disks were expensive, in short supply and the firm wanted to reuse them instead of archiving to them or to TAR tapes that were difficult to use.

FORMAT CONSIDERATIONS: Self describing tape media, easy to use, OS cross platform compatibility, easily portable, easy to duplicate for off-site protection, lower cost than current methods, open standard.

RESOLUTION: LTO tape drives and library, Linear Tape File System.

RESULTS: LTFS created self describing tapes that can easily determine tape contents with browser. LTO technology and LTFS are an Open standard and provide cross O/S platform compatibility to go from Linux to MAC to Windows. Offers long term reliable archive and is cost effective – about 100 XDCAM disks can be stored on 1 LTO tape. Saves considerable space, allows reuse of XDCAM disks and improved data protection with 2 LTO tape copies keeping one copy offsite.

A Leading Entertainment Company
A Leading Entertainment Company

SITUATION: Enhance the entertainment firm’s tape archive and production process for creating, storing and retrieving digital media.

GOAL: To create a comprehensive digital asset management solution designed to enhance the daily production process of a long-running daily television show, and transferring its current analog tape archive of nearly 20 years of footage to a fully digitized collection that includes descriptive information about the video footage, enabling easy search and retrieval capabilities.

FORMAT CONSIDERATIONS: Speed, capacity, cost of ownership.

RESOLUTION: Using an ultra-scalable tape library incorporating LTO Ultrium drives, the entertainment firm digitally stored and retrieved all of its film archive much faster, more efficiently and less expensively.

RESULTS: The solution would provide the company with the ability to quickly search and query its massive archive of digitized file footage. The show’s producers would then receive low-resolution files matching their search for browsing purposes, and subsequently retrieve high-resolution files for final editing and broadcast.
