Tape is a very old way to store data. Although many people think it should be eliminated long ago, in fact it is not. On the contrary, with the explosive growth of human data, tape equipment has been revitalized. IBM Greater China CTO Xie Dong recently proposed that tape will remain the mainstream storage medium in the next decade, and its capacity will be increased. It will grow by 30% annually, while traditional hard drives will grow by only 10%.

Why is tape still popular? Because many of the data that humans need to save are cold data, that is, data that is not commonly used, most of which is for backup and storage, so the demand is still growing, and the advantages of tape are large in storage capacity, low in cost, and long in storage time. and many more.

Fuji launched the LTO series tape from 200 years ago. The LTO Ultrium 8 series tape introduced this time uses BaFe (barium ferrite magnetic material) and has Fuji patented nano-thin coating technology. The tape length is 960m and the width is 12.65mm. , thickness 5.6um.

LTO Ultrium 8 series tapes have a capacity of up to 30TB (12TB in uncompressed case), twice that of previous products, and a speed of 750MB/s (360MB/s in uncompressed case).Performance and capacity are better than HDD hard disk, suitable for long-term storage of important data.

Fuji's LTO 8 series tapes have two types, one is repeatable erase data, the other is WROM, write once, read many times. This type of tapes can prevent data from being tampered with or accidentally deleted, and improve security.
