Proprietary Nanocubic technology assures high capacity and rock-solid reliability

In today's information age, enterprise-class data storage systems require the use of storage media that offer both high capacity and high reliability. Fujifilm's Enterprise Tape Cartridge 3592 for IBM 3592 TotalStorage® Enterprise Tape Drive Systems offer outstanding reliability, and as the first product to feature our proprietary Nanocubic thin-coating technology for magnetic media, they offer a native capacity of up to 300GB (900GB with 3:1 data compression) and a native data transfer speed of 40MB per second (110MB per second with 3:1 data compression).

Up to 300GB (native) and 900GB (3:1 Data compressed) High-capacity Data Storage

Fujifilm's proprietary ultra-thin magnetic layer nano-coating technology and newly developed needle-shaped metal nano-particle technology ensure outstanding data storage capacity. With 512-track recording and a tape width of 12.65mm, Fujifilm's Enterprise Tape Cartridge 3592 for IBM 3592 TotalStorage® Enterprise Tape Drive Systems have a native capacity of 300GB (900GB with 3:1 compression).

Structual Comparison of Magnetic Media
Consistently High Output

Fujifilm tape has an exceptionally smooth surface that assures improved head contact and minimal spacing loss. As a result, output is consistently high.

High-precision Servo System

Servo signals encoded directly on the tape ensure high-precision head tracking with timing-based servo systems. Fujifilm quality control assures outstanding signal quality and precision.

Ruggedly Constructed Cartridge Shells

For maximum durability, cartridge shells are constructed of heavy-gauge resin, and internal components are specially designed to withstand heavy use. Five high tensile-strength screws are also used to secure the cartridge shell halves together.

High-reliability Sliding Door Mechanism

Dust protection and durability are enhanced by a highly reliable curved sliding door and leader pin system.

Sliding Door Closed / Sliding Door Open
Built-in Memory Modules

All cartridges are equipped with multifunction non-contact flash memory modules.
