Increased capacity

Rapid data growth compounds the need for increased storage capacity. The ninth generation of LTO Ultrium tape media delivers 18 TB native capacity and up to 45 TB of compressed capacity for significantly greater efficiency and performance. This exceptional capacity helps reduce the number of cartridges and the amount of equipment, space and labor associated with tape-based data storage, enabling an outstanding total cost of ownership (TCO).

Optimal data security

To comply with regulatory requirements and preserve stakeholder trust, organizations must protect data from unauthorized access and unintentional loss. Tape cartridge portability facilitates remote, offline data storage for superior protection from natural or man-made threats that can impact online or on-site data storage. IBM LTO Ultrium 9 data cartridges are compatible with LTO Ultrium 9 tape drives, which offer device-level data encryption to ensure data privacy and reduce the risk of data corruption due to virus or sabotage. The WORM cartridge model stores data in a non-erasable, non-rewritable format to prevent overwriting of stored data and reduce the risk of data loss due to human error.
