The IBM LTO 2 tape provides capacity, performance and reliability for midrange and network tape automated storage environments. It contains half-inch metal particle tape; cartridges and feature a native data capacity of 200GB and a compressed data capacity of 400GB (2:1 compression) The IBM LTO2 data cartridge includes a Linear Tape-Open Cartridge Memory (LTO - CM) chip that contains cartridge specific information to communicate with Ultrium tape drives during loading/unloading via a radio frequency component. They adhere to widely supported Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium 2 design specifications by combining high storage capacity (200 GB native, 400 GB with 2:1 compression), performance, and reliability, the IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 200 GB Data Cartridges continue the IBM focus on enhancing tape technology. These cartridges are part of a long line of IBM data cartridges that help provide quality and reliability for organizations around the world. Cost-effective design Increasing cartridge capacity and performance can help reduce the amount of equipment, space and human intervention required for daily tape operations. In addition, reducing the number of cartridges needed for backup and restore operations can help lower operational costs throughout the enterprise. Advanced LTO-CM chip IBM TotalStorage LTO Ultrium 200 GB Data Cartridges, along with IBM Ultrium 2 drives, support the Linear Tape-Open Cartridge Memory (LTO-CM) chip, which enables the IBM Ultrium 2 tape drive to read and write to the data cartridge by using a radio frequency transmission. The LTO-CM enables fast, simultaneous transfer of cartridge dependent data with IBM Ultrium 2 tape drives during media load and unload cycles. This simultaneous exchange is designed to improve data access speeds by eliminating the need to read/write cartridge-dependent data from the media after it is loaded or before it is unloaded.
