For customers looking for long-term data solutions, Fujifilm’s Barium Ferrite technology ensures the future viability of tape technology.
“Reliable data storage remains a critical consideration for businesses, and Fujifilm’s advanced Barium Ferrite technology delivers dependability and capacity to organizations looking at their future storage needs,” said Peter Faulhaber, president, FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. “The ESG white paper easily explains the advantages of Barium Ferrite technology and confirms Fujifilm’s commitment to tape technology development.”
Since 2000, Fujifilm has led the development of large-capacity data tape for backup and archival applications. The most recent FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium 6 Data Cartridge is based on Fujifilm’s NANOCUBIC technology and incorporates BaFe particles, with superior performance and longer archival life compared to conventional metal particle (MP) tape. BaFe particles are also used in the production of large multi-terabyte enterprise system data tape, supporting the needs of various customers in diverse industries for their large volume back-up and archival needs.
