Oracle’s StorageTek T10000 and T10000 T2 tape cartridges work in tandem with Oracle’s StorageTek T10000, T10000B, T10000C, and T10000D tape drives to address issues related to data growth, security, manageability, and cost. Store Far More in the Same Footprint With up to 8.5 TB native capacity, the StorageTek T10000 T2 tape cartridge, for the StorageTek T10000D tape drive, stores more data in the same footprint. For the StorageTek T10000A and T10000B tape drives, the StorageTek T10000 tape cartridge can store up to 1 TB of data to help you meet rapidly growing data storage requirements. Ultra-high capacity makes the StorageTek T10000 and T10000 T2 tape cartridges ideal for all high-volume backup, archiving, and disaster recovery applications. Increase the Security of Your Data The StorageTek T10000/T10000 T2 tape cartridges’ SafeGuide system increases data security and includes features that can increase reliability and extend media life. A unique hub lock stabilizes media within the cartridge shell. A redesigned buckler mechanism securely attaches the cartridge leader to the drive leader. A long tape path guides the media more accurately and reduces tension on the tape—tape tension can reduce the life of heads and media. Data integrity is enhanced because the tape guides and rollers guide the media on its backside and do not contact the recording surface. The rollers also enhance stability by minimizing lateral tape motion. Data security is further enhanced by StorageTek VolSafe tape cartridge secure media technology, which provides write once, read many (WORM) protection. StorageTek VolSafe tape cartridge technology provides physical, visual, and electronic features to differentiate it from non-StorageTek VolSafe tape cartridge technology. Simplify Tape Operations Simpler tape operations can improve access to data. With the same physical size as Oracle’s StorageTek 9840 and StorageTek 9940 tape cartridges, the StorageTek T10000/T10000 T2 tape cartridges integrate simply and easily with your current StorageTek automated tape systems. The cartridges are system tested for use with the StorageTek full lineup of StorageTek T10000 tape drives, as well as StorageTek tape automation systems and software from Oracle and many third-party providers. The StorageTek T10000/T10000T2 tape cartridges also can help you use staff resources more efficiently. StorageTek tape cartridges can be labeled prior to delivery with volume serial number (VOLSER) labels, then initialized and verified with a triple quality check. Prelabeling typically reduces the occurrence of operational intervention caused by poorly applied labels. The StorageTek T10000/T10000T2 tape cartridges include an RFID tag that provides cartridge redundancy data such as VOLSER, file directories, and other data for improved data recovery and faster data access.
 
Protect Your Investment and Reduce Total Cost of Ownership The StorageTek T10000/T10000T2 tape cartridges lower TCO through media reusability, higher cartridge capacity, and cartridge durability. Each StorageTek T10000T2 tape cartridge can store up to eight and a half times as much data as the previous-generation tape cartridge, enabling massive scalability to match any expected future growth requirements. The tapes written in the StorageTek T10000C tape drive can be rewritten in the StorageTek T10000D tape drive at up to 8.5 TB capacity, enabling media reuse across two generations of tape drives. Accordingly, you might be able to buy fewer cartridges and conserve valuable floor space compared to your current tape technologies, all while maintaining ability to scale storage environment. The StorageTek T10000 tape cartridge can be used in the StorageTek T10000, T10000B, T10000C, and T10000D tape drives. The tapes written in the StorageTek T10000 tape drive can be rewritten in the StorageTek T10000B tape drive at double the capacity, enabling media reuse across two generations of tape drives. StorageTek T10000 tape cartridges can be read back in StorageTek T10000C and T10000D tape drives, enabling customers to support existing tapes and promoting ease of migration to the next generation of StorageTek T10000 tape drives

Cartridge replacement due to damage or wear and tear can be an unexpected cost. The StorageTek T10000 and T10000T2 tape cartridges are built for long-term, cost-effective use. The heavy-duty casing of the StorageTek T10000 tape cartridge family, along with a lockable cartridge hub, reduces the risk of damage to data and ensures maximum level of protection for media.
