Maxell Ships DAT 160

Maxell Corporation of America announces general availability starting in May of DAT 160

The DAT 160 is backwards compatible with DAT 72 and DDS-4, allowing small and medium size businesses to upgrade and take advantage of this newest technology, while at the same time maintaining access to previously recorded data. The backwards compatibility also means that previous DDS technology investments are extended.

DDS is an established leader in providing price/performance value to the entry-level storage marketplace. With the improvement in capacity and performance, while maintaining the form factor and affordability of its DDS predecessors, DAT 160 broadens and strengthens this extremely popular and cost-effect tape format.

According to Robert Amatruda, IDC Research Director, Tape and Removable Storage, in a recent IDC report on drive shipments,** DDS tape technology represented approximately 73 percent of the worldwide low end tape drive unit shipments in 2006.

“The development of DAT 160 and Maxell’s immediate product launch into the market is a prime example of our focused commitment and leadership role within the storage media industry,” said Steven Pofcher, Senior Marketing Manager at Maxell. “We are providing the highest quality data storage media and services that our customers can trust when backing up their business-critical information.”
