With a compressed storage capacity of 3.0 TB, the Sony LTO Ultrium 5 cartridge delivers new functionality to support the ever-increasing requirements of today’s data-rich storage environments. Users can now create two partitions within the cartridge, addressing both file control and space management. This feature can help to increase access speed, which is important for storing rich media files. The LTO-5 cartridge adds this feature while still retaining the hardware-based encryption introduced with LTO-4 technology, which helps to protect the storage and transport of sensitive information.

The LTO-5 cartridge continues Sony’s goal to develop environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. Sony’s LTO cartridge shells are manufactured with recycled resin made from regenerated polycarbonate materials disposed by and collected from Sony group companies. This helps Sony reduce virgin resin usage by 95 tons per year.
