  • 1Description

Designed to support comprehensive backup, recovery, and archiving strategies, the LTO Ultrium 8 Data Cartridge from Quantum provides quality, reliability, high performance, and durability. Ready to be used for primary backups or long-term archiving, LTO Ultrium media is optimized for use in stand-alone and automated environments and has an archival life of up to 30 years. Uncompressed, it offers a storage capacity of 12TB, but thanks to a 2.5:1 compression factor, it can deliver a storage capacity of 30TB. This media is rewritable, as compared to WORM (write once, read many), and is protected by a limited lifetime warranty.

Broad Market Needs

Quantum's comprehensive media quality monitoring and interoperability testing helps ensure cross-platform compatibility, improved performance, and reliability, whether you're using a Quantum tape drive, library, or other LTO-compatible hardware.
Quantum's LTO Ultrium media is compliant with most media integrity analysis utilities. You can add another level of protection throughout the lifecycle of your data with the Advanced Media Usage Report and Extended Data Life Management (EDLM) features available in Quantum LTO Ultrium media. Media analysis and usage reports provide a view of the media condition for an entire media pool used within a specific tape library, even those in off-site storage. EDLM is a Scalar automation feature designed to help ensure the media integrity of cartridges placed in long-term archival or vaulted storage that are no longer used during normal operations. When your critical data is involved, it's important to have a complete health record of your media.
