Fuji LTO 8 (16551221)


Meeting 8th generation “LTO (Linear Tape Open) Ultrium standards” for magnetic tape media, Ultrium 8 Data Cartridge will allow for backup and archive of large volumes of data, high-speed data transfer at 750 MB/sec. ( 360 MB/sec. for non-compressed data), and offer a storage capacity of 30 TB ( 12 TB for non-compressed data). LTO8, with its high capacity and capability to store data for over 50 years, is optimal for economically storing large quantities of “cold data”- data that is seldom accessed as time passes- over the long term.

For Further Reliable Data Storage, FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium Data Cartridge will be the Answer

As database- and Internet-related applications require greater data storage, and critical operations demand minimized downtime due to backup operations, new cost-effective solutions are needed.

High recording density achived thanks to proprietary “Barium Ferrite magnetic particle technology” and “NANOCUBIC technology”

Fujifilm was the first in the world to commercialize magnetic tapes using “BaFe magnetic particles” in 2011.
As the successor to LTO6, LTO7,and LTO8 also employs “BaFe magnetic particles”. With LTO8, Fujifilm has further developed its proprietary “Barrium Ferrite magnetic particle technology” and “NANOCUBIC technology”, expanding storage capacity to about 2 times that of LTO7 at 30TB (when data is compressed)


Enhanced “NANOCUBIC technology”

Fujifilm LTO Ultrium 8 data cartridges use Fujifilm's enhanced NANOCUBIC technology, which incorporates three Fujifilm proprietary technologies.

  • Nano-particle Technology: Micronizing of uniform Barium Ferrite particles.
  • Nano-dispersion Technology: Uniform dispersion for nano sized particle.
  • Nano-coating Technology: Very smooth ultra-thin layer coating to realize an even thinner magnetic layer.
Barium Ferrite

“Barium Ferrite magnetic particles” offer outstanding recording and retrieval performance for long-term storage. The magnetic property remains stable when micronized, and it enables good signal quality with little noise over a wide frequency range. Fujifilm's “Barium Ferrite magnetic particles” offer low variance in terms of magnetic properties, offering greater stability, and the ability to reliably store data for over thirty years has been verified. In April 2015, Fujifilm in cooperation with IBM demonstoraged the potential of achieving a data cartridge with 220 terabytes of uncompressed capacity using an advanced prototype of Barium Ferrite magnetic particles.

FUJIFILM Servo Technology

LTO Ultrium technology relies heavily on timing-based, high-precision servo control to achieve its remarkable performance levels. LTO Ultrium data cartridge uses dual servo tracks that have been precisely written along the entire length of each of its four data bands, for extremely fine placement control and redundancy in the event of tape damages.

Encrypted for Security

From LTO G4 System, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption algorithms is introduced to keep data secure. The hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption offers higher level of security during storage and transporting of sensitive information.
