Maxell Corp, a technology and marketing leader in premium recordable media products, announced the completion of qualification of Super DLTtape II media by Quantum Corp, thus recognizing Maxell as the world's first qualified manufacturer and supplier of Super DLTtape II media.
Maxell completed a joint development program with Quantum Corp. to co-develop Super DLTtape II media to support the data recording requirements of the newly introduced Quantum SDLT 600 tape drive. The Super DLTtape II media optimizes the performance of the SDLT 600 tape drive, delivering a native capacity of 300GB (600GB with compression) and a native transfer rate of 36 MB per second (72 MB per second with compression) to meet the rapidly growing data storage requirements of today's automation and enterprise customers.
"Maxell is very pleased to be part of this milestone in Super DLTtape technology. The Super DLTtape II development program with Quantum provides another example of Maxell's commitment as a global industry leader to once again meet market requirements for higher capacity and higher data transfer rate media," said Hideaki Numoto, president of Maxell. "Our relationship with Quantum ensures that Super DLTtape II media produced by Maxell will deliver optimal performance on SDLT 600 drives."
"Maxell continues to be an essential, collaborative supporter, helping further enhance DLTtape media solutions which provide our customers with unparalleled value, performance, and capacity," said Phil Ritti, Quantum's vice president and general manager of the DLTtape Media Division. "Quantum's SDLT 600 tape drive and Super DLTtape II media are ideally suited to meet the data protection needs of the most demanding and data-intensive automation and enterprise environments."
The new Super DLTtape II media incorporates a series of advances developed to support eMP60 technology enabling the 300GB native capacity and beyond:
Super DLTtape II media is an evolution of Super DLTtape technology that provides the technology base to enable the next generation of Super DLTtape technology, expected to provide a compressed capacity of 1.2 TB per cartridge.
