Organizations have more data than ever before to manage, protect and preserve for longer periods of time. They must balance between mitigating risks and reducing costs when making data storage investment decisions. The IBM LTO Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge is designed to help organizations manage explosive data growth; sustain rapid, reliable access to data; and ensure business resilience. Rapid data growth compounds the need for increased storage capacity. The sixth generation of LTO Ultrium tape media delivers 2.5 TB native capacity and up to 6.25 TB of compressed capacity for even greater efficiency and performance. This exceptional capacity helps reduce the number of cartridges and the amount of equipment, space and labour associated with tape-based data storage. 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 manmade threats that can impact online or onsite data storage. IBM LTO Ultrium 6 data cartridges are compatible with LTO Ultrium 6 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. LTO Ultrium 6 supports tape partitioning and Linear Tape File System (LTFS), making tape storage an even more compelling solution for data protection and preservation. With LTFS, the data files are indexed to facilitate search and retrieval using disk-like directory tree structures and drag- and- drop techniques. LTFS allows users and applications to directly retrieve files from tape rather than rely on proprietary, third- party applications, thereby significantly enhancing data access.
