Imation’s 26592 is a Linear Tape-Open 4(LTO-4) format tape cartridge. It has a tape length of 820m which enables a native data storage capacity of 800GB that can be expanded up to 1600GB when compressed. It features the use of a servo-writing process to help ensure accurate read/write operations enabling best-in-class Position Error Signal (PES) performance to minimize errors and improve overall transfer rates. The Imation 26592 tape cartridge has data transfer speeds of up to 240MB/s when compressed. This innovative technique protects the Imation LTO-4 tape cartridge and ensures that the leader pin does not deviate from its position. Imation 26592 LTO-4 tape is a high capacity cartridge designed for long term useful life and fast speed recovery and backup operations. Corner snap technology has helped to protect the tape media from pollutants and debris as it is prohibited from entering the ultrium cartridge. Therefore even flow of the tape reel is ensured that maximizes the performance level and read-write efficiency.
Backup processing time of Imation LTO-4 media technology is very efficient. Imation LTO-4 features high SNR and increased track density. The consistency of signal strength ensures fast transfer rate. Major factor that slows the processing time is the noise level which has been solved in the Imation LTO-4 tape format. High SNR of Imation LTO-4 tape increases data throughput thus leading to increased productivity.
Imation continues to focus on adding enhanced features to its backup storage products in order to serve its customers with increased performance and efficiency. Closer track spacing has been made possible in Imation LTO-4 tape format by the incorporation of servo writing technology. This feature improves recording reliability and enables the Imation 26592 LTO-4 tape cartridge to pack more volumes of data. The servo technique ensures alignment of drive’s head with the tape media’s data tracks so that data can be written with increased level of efficiency. In order to handle heavy stress & workloads, Imation has developed a new design comprising of 3 piece tape spool instead of the old two piece spool technique. This 3 piece spool architecture keeps the tape media flat that helps in protection of the recorded information across the complete tape reel and evenly distributes the stress.
On the other hand if we see the Imation LTO3 tape it provides high level security to the stored data for longer time periods. LTO ultrium tape format has a roadmap that comprises of six generations. Back coating mechanism engineered by Imation has now become a new standard for LTO ultrium tapes. Specific design of Imation 26592 ultrium tape helps to meet the enterprise networks and mid-range backup system’s storage demands at an affordable price. Imation LTO-3 tape not only secures the organization’s data and technology investments. WORM functionality is a compelling attribute of Imation LTO-3 ultrium tape that provides further protection and reliability to the precious backed up information thus facilitating the businesses to meet the regulations & laws related to data retention. High speed Imation LTO-3 features all the latest techniques that satisfy the high demanding data retention needs of the business enterprises.
