Quantum LTO-6 Ultrium Data Cartridge Tape (Metal Particle), MR-L6MQN-03

In stock


Quantum LTO-6 tapes with Metal Particle (MP) technology offer advanced data storage capabilities for backup and archiving purposes. Metal Particle is a key component in the construction of the magnetic layer of the tape, which is responsible for storing and preserving data.

Metal Particle technology involves the use of microscopic metal particles that are evenly dispersed in a binder material to form the magnetic layer. These metal particles, typically made of a cobalt-based alloy, are designed to exhibit high magnetic properties, allowing for efficient data recording and retrieval.

The Metal Particle layer of Quantum LTO-6 tapes plays a crucial role in achieving high-density data storage. The evenly dispersed metal particles create a uniform magnetic field across the tape's surface, ensuring precise data placement and reliable signal strength during read and write operations. This uniformity contributes to the tapes' ability to store large amounts of data, offering a native capacity of up to 2.5 terabytes (TB) and a compressed capacity of up to 6.25 TB.

The Metal Particle layer also enhances the durability and longevity of Quantum LTO-6 tapes. The metal particles are designed to have excellent resistance to demagnetization, ensuring that the stored data remains intact and reliable over extended periods. This durability makes the tapes suitable for long-term archival storage, where data integrity is critical.

Additionally, the Metal Particle technology used in Quantum LTO-6 tapes enables fast data transfer rates. With a native data transfer rate of up to 160 megabytes per second (MB/s) and a compressed data transfer rate of up to 400 MB/s, these tapes provide efficient backup and recovery operations. The high-speed performance allows for quick data access and reduces the time required for data backups, improving overall operational efficiency.

The Metal Particle layer is designed to be compatible with read/write heads in LTO tape drives, ensuring optimal performance and data accuracy. The advanced formulation of the Metal Particle layer enables excellent signal-to-noise ratios, minimizing data errors and ensuring reliable data retrieval. This compatibility and reliability contribute to the overall efficiency and effectiveness of Quantum LTO-6 tape systems.

Overall, Quantum LTO-6 tapes with Metal Particle technology offer a robust and reliable data storage solution. With their high-density storage capacity, fast data transfer rates, and durable Metal Particle layer, these tapes provide organizations with a dependable option for data backup, archiving, and long-term data retention.

Top Reasons To Use Tape Vs Cloud Backup 

  • Store large amounts of data 
  • Long-term data preservation 
  • Ransomware resiliency 
  • Greater ROI vs. the public cloud 
  • Disaster recovery 
  • Sustainability 
  • Data governance 
  • Data sovereignty 

                  If you need to store large amounts of data for extended periods of time, using a On-Premise tape Backup solution has far more advantages compared to Public Cloud Storage.
                  There is considerable cost savings and more options without incurring unexpected charges.
