The IBM LTO Ultrium 8 Data Cartridge 01PL041 stores up to 12TB in native or uncompressed capacity at 360MB/sec, and up to 30TB of compressed data at 900MB/sec. That is up to 1.38TB per hour native/uncompressed or up to 3.24TB per hour compressed. The IBM LTO 8 cartridge continues the use of Barium Ferrite (BaFe) particles which improves reliability, longevity and density. The IBM LTO8 tape cartridges 01PL041 are the latest release with highest speed and capacity of the LTO ultrium family. Please note this cartridge is the same cartridge as the Lenovo branded tape, but Lenovo is the retail brand of IBM and usually more expensive!
PLEASE NOTE we are taking advanced orders for these tapes due in by mid to late September, 2019. Any purchases made will not be supplied until then!
For the option of LTO barcode labels attached to your tapes please see Application of Tape Barcode Labels for details.
Drives that use the IBM LTO Ultrium 8 data cartridges 01PL041 are recommended to use the IBM LTO Ultrium Universal Cleaning Cartridge 35L2086 to keep the drive clean.

Due to the legal battles between the two major tape manufacturers, LTO8 tapes have been unavailable until September, 2019. Please ensure you pre-order your LTO8 tapes in advance if required; otherwise you can use LTO8 M8 tapes (LTO7 with higher capacity) or LTO7 tapes in your LTO8 drives.
