LTO ULTRIUM 2
Up to 400GB compressed capacity,
thanks to LTO2 technology.
LTO (Linear Tape Open)
Now, get double the capacity of LTO1
Using the latest Sony coating technology, LTO satisfies large
backup needs with 200GB native and 400GB compressed
capacity per cartridge.
Even faster data transfer
For quicker backup and cost efficiency, LTO2 offers
ultra-high-speed 40MB/s native and 80MB/s compressed
data transfer.
High-performance data cartridge
Like LTO1, the LTO2 cartridge incorporates a robust
non-contact 4KB IC memory. Besides accelerating file access,
this markedly speeds up cartridge access in library environments.
LTO is a new standard jointly developed
by HP, IBM and Quantum.
LTO ULTRIUM 2
Greater data transfer stability
An advanced cartridge mechanism optimizes reel-to-cartridge slip and friction.
The result is steady reel rotation for more stable data transfer.
Reduced critical tracking errors
LTX200G
Cartridge
Sony developed a dedicated LTO format servo writer to complement enhanced tape
performance by providing a high-quality magnetic servo signal. This noticeably improves
data writing and reading accuracy.
Advanced tape technology for MR heads
Sony minimized tape noise to match the high-sensitivity of MR heads. Tape surface variation
is also finely controlled to assure tape travel stability for optimum head-media interfacing.
