Dicker Data First in Australia with Fujifilm LTO7 Data Tapes

Following up on the previous article detailing Fujifilm’s unveiling of their latest magnetic data tape storage, the LTO7. Dicker Data has become the first company in Australia to receive stock LTO7 data tapes. Dicker Data is Australia’s largest owned and operated, ASX listed IT and hardware distributer. As the company continues to grow and expand, Dicker Data has recently raked in over $1 Billion in revenue. With over 3000 re-sellers, many of them being technology vendors such as HP, Toshiba, ASUS, and other global brands, the future looks bigger and better for Dicker Data.

Dicker Data Business Development Manager, Paul Tutton has this to say about being the first in the Australia to acquire LTO7 data tapes, “Being first to market with such a unique product as Fujifilm’s new LTO7 tapes is important to Dicker Data as our dedicated sales teams, presales teams and product specialists are focused on using their in-depth knowledge of the very latest technologies to help customers tailor solutions to suit their clients’ needs.”

A substantial upgrade over previous magnetic data tapes. The LTO7 boasts large storage high-speed data transfer. Up to 15TB storage capacity, and 6TB of uncompressed data, offering more than double what the LTO6 offers. Offering up to 750MB/s transfer data speeds, it almost double what the LTO6 can offer.

As high-capacity data takes up more and more space, the demand for larger-volume, faster transfer speed storage devices will no doubt increase as well. Fujifilm have partnered with IBM and demonstrated the potential for magnetic tapes to archive up to 220TB of uncompressed data. No doubt Dicker Data will be on the front foot in regards to securing first rights for those.

The Fujifilm LTO7 magnetic tape storage is available now through Dicker Data.
