WORM (Write Once Read Many) Function Data tampering prevention and original content retention
"Write Once Read Many" or "WORM" technology refers to a recordable device where information, once written, cannot be modified or overwritten.
The LTO Ultrium format Generation 3 and later specifications include the ability for WORM.
Using an Ultrium WORM-dedicated cartridge tape
- Data can be added until the capacity is full, but cannot be deleted or overwritten.
- Written data can be read as many times as desired.
- LTO Ultrium provides WORM functionality using WORM dedicated cartridge tapes.
(WORM dedicated cartridge tapes are two-tone and can be distinguished by their appearance from normal uni-color cartridge tapes.)
The use of the right cartridge tape enables appropriate and secure data storage.
