LTO-6 tape

LTO-6 tape has made improvements that significantly increase the stability of the rotating tape reel which enables stable, high-speed linear tape motion, necessary to realise the higher capacity and increased transfer speed of LTO-6 data cartridges.

Enhanced servo signal accuracy and improved linear tape motion

Enhanced servo writing technology and improved linear tape motion enable narrower tracks to be written and read accurately, resulting in higher recording density.  In addition, Sony conducts 100% servo signal quality testing in order to provide our customers with confidence in using Sony LTO-6 data cartridges.

Improved binder system for more stable operation

To provide enhanced tape durability and reliability, Sony LTO-6 tape utilises an improved, Cross-linked Binder System which provides superior wear resistance characteristics in addition to accommodating the super-fine magnetic particles.

The improved robust magnetic layer can withstand more that tens of thousands of drive passes providing the user with stable and smooth operation under various environmental conditions.

Sony LTO-6 tape provides 2.5TB’s of native capacity, 6.25TB compressed at a transfer rate of 160MB/s native and 400MB/s compressed.  LTO-6 tape is the latest generation of LTO (Linear Tape Open) and is ideal for large systems backups or suitable for archival purposes and provides peace of mind from the world’s largest manufacturer of LTO tape media.

All Sony LTO media has a lifetime guarantee against defects. If for any reason your LTO-6 tape becomes defective Sony will send out a replacement. In addition to this if the media fault leads to data loss and it has been kept in the correct environmental conditions and used correctly Sony also provides a tape data recovery service.
