Fujifilm LTO Tapes Are DAMsmart
E

stablished in 2007, DAMsmart
has grown to be Australia's
leading digitisation and archiving
company. As the company has
grown so has its exclusive use of
Fujifilm LTO media.
DAMsmart GM Joe Kelly
explained: "We've always had a
good relationship with the Fujifilm
Australia team and have used many
of their products before, including
data tape and optical tapes so we
knew they were good quality. When
we started DAMsmart having Fujifilm
LTO tape as our prime data media
choice was a no brainer. In the
last seven years we have written
approximately 12 peta bytes of data
to thousands of Fujifilm LTO tapes
and I can count the number of errors
or issues on one hand. They really
are that good."
DAMsmart have a who's who list
of clients that they have provided
digitisation and archiving services
to including the NFSA, SBS TV,
Prime Television, The Department
of Parliamentary Services (DPS),

34

the Olympic Council of Asia and
MediaCorp Singapore.
Kelly continued: "The demand for
LTO tapes in archiving and storage
has increased dramatically over the
last seven years. Initially there was a
resistance to archiving onto tape but
the economic and reliability factors
speak for themselves and are hard
to argue against. LTO gives you a
very low per GB storage cost and its
long term data storage and retention
simply cannot be matched by any
other media."
DAMsmart not only writes and
archives all its data to Fujifilm
LTO tape but all duplicates are
also on the same LTO tape. The
consistency and reliability is critical
according to Kelly.
He added: "In the world of storage
and archiving word of mouth spreads
quickly. As a result we see more and
more companies moving away from
disk-based archiving to LTO tapebased solutions. Another reason for
this is the increase in performance
of LTO tapes over the last few years.

The LTO drives have also improved
as have the bandwidths in archive
workflows. The big jump was from
LTO-4 to LTO-5 which coincided
with the launch of the Linear Tape
File System (LTFS) for data tape
and the implementation of LTFS for
media archives. LTFS now means
we can de-couple an archive from
a particular vendor which gives us
and the customer far more flexibility
and options. Now with LTO-5 and
LTO-6 the options have become
even more efficient and even faster."
Kelly sees LTO tape as being the
cornerstone of data management
in storage and archiving for
many years to come concluding:
"DAMsmart are continually pushing
and building LTO-based solutions
for our customers. LTFS was a
real game changer and now with
Fujifilm's Barium Ferrite coated
LTO-6 tapes, another game changer
due to its superior technology over
using standard metal particles, we
can make our clients' archives
even more open and accessible

Fujifilm Barium Ferritecoated LTO-6 tape

whilst having the highest levels of
reliability and durability. Fujifilm has
supported DAMsmart in our goal
of using and implementing open
standards as opposed to closed
proprietary systems and the results
have paid off. We now use more
Fujifilm LTO tapes than ever before
and this trend is very much set
to continue."

Vitec Videocom Boosts Camera Corps' Specialist Provision

SIS Live Special Cameras'
formidable inventory and specially

additions to Vitec Videocom's global

This is a fantastic opportunity
to deliver innovative and unique
solutions to our customers that give

or even dreamt of, before," says Matt

"We can now capture amazing images
anywhere - from the mast of a yacht,

Stump Cam is used on cricket pitches all over the world

to the underside of a bobsled, to the
stump of a cricket match."

Cam used on cricket pitches all over
the world, and on-board cameras
in high profile events such as the
America's Cup yachting and Isle of
Mann TT racing.

to diving as it follows high board
divers into the pool and underwater,
and the Halibut Underwater HD

camera mounting systems used for
state events inside listed buildings,
such as St Paul's Cathedral,

Halibut Underwater HD tracking camera
