Sony’s LTO6 Tape cartridges feature a storage capacity of 2.5TB (native) to 6.25TB (compressed), with higher transfer rates of 160 MB/s(native) to 400MB/s(compressed).
The new cartridge is manufactured with fine magnetic particles and a higher thermal stability binder. In order to maximize performance, an improved dispersing technology for these particles was introduced.
Improved reel structure to enhance tape to head interface
Sony's technologies significantly increase the stability of the rotating tape reel which enables stable, high-speed linear tape motion, necessary to realize the capacity and transfer speed of LTO6 media.
Enhanced servo signal accuracy and improved linear tape motion
Enhanced servo writing technology and improved linear tape motion enables narrower tracks to be written and read accurately, resulting in higher recording density.
Improved binder system for more stable operation
To provide enhanced tape durability and reliability, Sony LTO6 is manufactured with super-fine particles and a higher thermal stability binder. In order to maximize performance, an improved dispersing technology for these particles was introduced. The robust magnetic layer can withstand thousands of drive passes ensuring stable and smooth operation under various environmental conditions.
