Fujifilm Bows Cartridge Analyzer

VALHALLA, N.Y. -- FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. today introduced the Fujifilm DC Analyser, the first data center tool of its kind that leverages the expertise of a leading data tape media manufacturer to instantly provide key information on the age, use and condition of the popular LTO Ultrium format data cartridge. Providing access to this diagnostic information allows managers to quickly identify potential issues within a tape backup system, reinforcing confidence in the longevity and reliability of their tape-based assets.

Our experience is that when there is a tape back up problem in a busy data center, a common first reaction is to blame the media,” said Daniel Greenberg, New Product Planning Manager, Fujifilm Recording Media. “This tool will help data managers quickly identify if the source of the problem is the cartridge or if a cartridge issue is a symptom of a malfunctioning drive or unbalanced backup and network.”
