CA 5% *** HPE WORM LTO-6 Ultrium Data Cartridge LTO6 C7976W
WORM tapes can only be written to once and do not support LTFS. This kind of tape is for businesses that need to ensure their data has not been tampered with. If this feature is not required, we recommend a normal tape as they can be reused and provide more Terabytes per dollar.
LTO 6 tapes were designed during a change in material from Metal Particles (MP) to Barium Ferrite (BaFe). HPE tapes are MP tapes.
When using LTO 6 drives
IBM Drive : use BaFe Tapes
HP Drive : use MP Tapes
When using LTO 7 drives
