Overview:

The Market
With the exponential growth of the Internet and continual advances in networking and communications, the demands on data backup and archiving are relentlessly increasing. Over time, one technology—Quantum DLTtape®—has proven up to the challenge by providing extremely robust, scalable and dependable performance. Now, Quantum, leader in tape technology, delivers again, achieving an even higher level of performance and capacity in the new Quantum Super DLTtape® I tape media. With outstanding versatility, Super DLTtape is the quality media of choice for every application from entry-level departmental servers to complex enterprise-class storage area networks.

A New Level of Capacity
Combining next-generation technical innovations pioneered by Quantum together with proven magnetic and optical technologies, Super DLTtape I sets a new level of capacity and reliability. For example, by transferring optical servo guide information to the opposite side of the media, Super DLTtape I enables a significant increase in the number of recording tracks on the data-bearing media surface. As a result, a single Super DLTtape I cartridge provides up to 160GB native or 320GB compressed storage. Super DLTtape I also achieves superior reliability with a positive engagement tape leader buckling mechanism and a robust cartridge-shell material that supports the increased load/unload performance demanded in high-end and automated computing environments.

A Proven Choice
Quantum DLTtape drives and media are the industry standard in data storage. By any measure, the Super DLTtape I cartridges deliver the investment protection and extensible platform to meet most storage needs.
