TDK Life on Record - New LTO Ultrium 5 Tape Media

While this isn't one of our "sexiest posts", it's important to get the new stuff out to the people...

TDK Life on Record (a.k.a. Imation) announced yesterday it’s shipping it’s newest generation of LTO Tape Media, LTO Ultrium 5. This version has 1.5 terabytes of native capacity (3.0 terabytes compressed), a near doubling of capacity over the previous generation, and data transfer rates of up to 280 MB per second compressed.

LTO Ultrium 5 offers drive level hardware-based encryption, WORM (Write-Once, Read-Many) functionality and it's read-and-write backwards compatible with the Ultrium format generation 4 cartridges, and backward read capable with generation 3.

Now, I guess you could wrap yourself in LTO tape and it would make this info "sexy".

The previous four generations of Imation Linear Tape Open (LTO) tape cartridge are listed below:
Imation LTO-5, IMN-27733
Imation LTO-4, IMN-26592
Imation LTO-3, IMN-17532
Imation LTO-2, IMN-16598
Imation LTO-1, IMN-41089
