Fujifilm And IBM Expand Enterprise Tape Storage Capacity

Fujifilm Corporation announced that it worked with IBM to enhance the company's NANOCUBIC tape formulation to create a tape cartridge with 700GB of uncompressed storage capacity. The technology was developed for use in the IBM System Storage TS1120 Tape Drive, introduced in 2005 and now the first enterprise-grade tape system to offer 700 GB of uncompressed storage capacity on a single cartridge.

This new IBM System Storage 3592 Extended Data high-capacity tape media was announced in October and is now available from IBM in both re-writeable or Write Once, Read Many (WORM) formats. It is the first 700 GB tape media available to customers. The cartridges may be integrated into the IBM TS3500 Tape Library, the 3494 Tape Library and the Silo Compatible Tape Drive Frame 3592 Model C20 as well as into stand-alone environments.

Fujifilm NANOCUBIC magnetic coating method, first unveiled in 2002, utilizes a unique dual-layer particulate layering process for creating media, which is more commercially viable than other systems such as evaporated metal or sputtering techniques. Because of this, advanced Fujifilm tape media can be produced using existing manufacturing equipment and processes.

Fujifilm NANOCUBIC uses an ultra-thin layer coating to produce higher resolution for recording digital data, ultra-low noise and high signal-to-noise ratios that are ideal for magneto-resistive (MR) heads. NANOCUBIC combines a unique binder to provide more stable chemical performance and a super-fine magnetic particle that provides stable physical performance.
