Evaluation

While magnetic tape now has an image as an old-fashioned recording medium, it has the advantage that it keeps electricity consumption down because it requires no power other than when being written on and read back, so there is no risk of data loss due to power outages, crashes, or cyber-attacks. Incorporating unique advanced technologies, including in the magnetic material, particle configuration, and precision coating and molding, this product was praised for its outstanding design tailored to current and future needs for the safe, stable, long-term storage of the large volumes of data being created as a result of the growing prevalence of and advances in ICT and AI.
