FujiFilm and IBM have set a new record in data density equivalent to a 154TB LTO cartridge, which is 62 times greater than current LTO6 cartridge capacity.

Fuji used its proprietary Nanocubic and Barium Ferrite particle technologies to achieve 85.9 billion bits per square inch on linear magnetic particulate tape.

“This data density achievement is significant as corporate data is growing at an incredible rate, and secure and reliable storage remain critical considerations in today’s market,” said FujiFilm Recording media managing director Wolfgang May.
