Overview:

Quantum’s DAT/DDS cartridges have MRS (Media Recognition System) to inform the DAT/DDS drive that this medium is certified for the DAT/DDS system. Quantum’s DAT/DDS data cartridges have an extremely smooth base film giving the magnetic layer a mirror finish to reduce the spacing loss that causes errors.

Thanks to their outstanding static resistance, these data cartridges prevent dust accumulation, maintaining their exceptionally low error rate over an extended working life.

With a capacity of up to 320GB1, these easy-to-handle compact cartridges provide cost-efficient backup and long-term archiving options, making it an ideal choice for your specific backup and archive applications.

Features & Benefits

  • High Capacity – Up to 320GB1 capacity provides cost-efficient backup and longterm archiving.
  • Minimal Error Rate, Higher Efficiency – Although DAT/DDS cartridges have error correction, avoiding errors in the first place is the best solution. An extremely smooth base film and super-calendering techniques give the magnetic layer a mirror finish to reduce the spacing loss that causes error. Combined with the tape’s high output results in an extremely low error rate.
  • MRS (Media Recognition System) – DAT/DDS cartridges have MRS to inform the DAT/DDS drive that this medium is certified for the DAT/DDS system.
