Sony DDS-4 Backup Tape Solution Offers Wealth of Functions and Superior Reliability

Organizations of all types and sizes are witnessing an enormous growth in volume of mission-critical data. The major contributing factors to this relentless data growth are media-rich application software, increased E-business operations, time-critical backup applications and avalanche of e-mails.

The most popular and successful tape solution for small & medium business industry is the DDS (digital data storage) format. This remarkable DDS backup tape format, co-founded by Sony, satisfies the exploding data protection needs better than any other tape format.

Sony DDS tape products are the first choice for long term data preservation and economical backup storage for workstations, mid-range servers, mid-sized businesses and busy data centers. Sony DDS4 tape cartridges and drives are ideal for corporate servers and emerging backup applications. Capacity of Sony DDS-4 backup tape is 20GB / 40GB, and its part number is dgd150pww.

SDT-10000 and SDT-11000 are the two high-speed DDS-4 tape drive models developed by Sony. SDT-10000 tape drive features SCSI-3 Ultra Wide/SE interface, whereas SDT-11000 tape drive offers SCSI-3 Ultra Wide/LVD interface. The current users of DDS-1, DDS-2 and DDS-3 tape technologies can secure their investment, because the Sony DDS4 drives are fully write/read compatible with all previous generation DDS tapes.

DDS4 tape format offers all the reliable features of previous DDS tape generations, with technical advancements to enhance your storage value.

Sony has introduced a highly robust dual-layer coating for the development of DDS-4 tape cartridges, which helps to optimize the recording performance and ensure tape stability during high duty cycles. Sony has incorporated a HCL (high cross linkage) binder, which helps in smooth tape winding, reduces tape friction and provides greater reliability. Therefore, you can be assured of consistent performance and cost-effective backups even after repeated use.

Sony DDS4 drives offer 2.4 MB/s native data transfer rate. Dust accumulation and pollutants can increase the error rate and lead to higher media deterioration. Sony has solved this problem with the introduction of automated head cleaner.

Additionally, the unique SAFE (super air flow environment) architecture of the Sony DDS4 drive vents the tape path area, which removes the dust particles and helps to cool down the drive components. Furthermore, you can also use cleaning cartridges to ensure tape longevity and higher operating efficiency. Sony DGD15CL is a high performance DDS cleaning cartridge, which can be reliably used for up to 50 cleanings.

Longer working life cost-effective data storage and superior reliability have been ensured by Sony with the introduction of technical advancements in DDS-4 tape products. Sony DDS4 cartridges are made up of a strong plastic material, which protects the tape cartridge in the event of mechanical shocks, rough tape handlings and inadvertent drops.

Proven reliability and robustness of Sony DDS-4 tape devices provide users the confidence that their precious data assets are safe. Product and software names mentioned throughout this article are trademarks and are sole property of their owners.
