IBM and FujiFilm to make 700GB tape cartridge

Posted on Wednesday, December 27 2006 @ 16:16:33 CET by


FujiFilm partners with IBM to create the first 700GB tape cartridges.
The technology was developed for use in the IBM System Storage TS1120 Tape Drive, introduced in 2005, and now the first enterprise-grade tape system to use the 700 GB cartridges.

Back in May, the two companies demonstrated putting a record amount of data onto a test tape at a density of 6.67 billion bits per square inch. The 700 GB cartridge is the result of that R&D by researchers at IBM's Almaden Laboratories in San Jose, Calif.

The 700 GB cartridge is the next step to achieving multiple terabyte storage on a single cartridge, a goal first announced at that time. The cartridge, which is smaller than a typical VHS cassette, will be able to hold the text from 8 million books--volumes that if lined up, would fill 92 kilometers' (57 miles) worth of bookshelves, an IBM spokesperson said.
