Quantum DLTtape® III/IIIxt/IV
The Standard in Performance, Reliability, and Durabiulity

The DLTtape System
With the volume of information increasing exponentially, dependable recording and preservation of data is crucial to the successful operation of a corporation. One of the most critical links in this process is the quality of the backup tape itself. The Quantum DLTtape® family of half-inch cartridge tapes, designed and formulated specifically for Quantum DLTtape drives, delivers what you need: Proven performance and durability.

Built to the Highest Standards
Quantum DLTtape Technology takes advantage of the latest advances in binder chemistry with its unique high-grade metal particle (MP) formulation. By combining both solid and liquid lubricants in the tape binder system, tape and head wear are reduced while repelling airborne particles that could affect read/write head performance. In addition, by using a uniform particle shape, a dense binding system, a smooth coating surface, and a specially selected base film, Quantum DLTtape half–inch cartridge tapes take advantage of shorter wave–length recording schemes to ensure read compatibility with future generations of DLTtape drives.

Total Quality Control
Quantum DLTtape half–inch cartridge tapes are manufactured using the highest level of quality control, thorough in–process certification, and frequent audits. Sample tapes from each lot are tested according to the most stringent standards, including a write/read test using the interchange format proposed by ANSI X3B5 and adapted by ECMA and ISO.

Features and Benefits

  • High performance — Up to 80GB of storage per tape with data compression
  • Demonstrated durability — One million passes with a negligible impact on soft error rates and a 30-year archival life
  • Accurate — Patented tape leader delivers consistent tape motion while a unique tape/reel locking mechanism prevents tape slack
  • Rugged design — Shock-resistant cartridge combined with a durable plastic container that protects against corrosion
