Tape storage means better data economics. Long a preferred technology for data backup, tape is proving to be the ideal choice for cost-effective long term storage of unstructured data generated by big data and cloud computing. Scalability, durability, security, energy efficiency and a compellingly lower cost than disk make tape the “secret weapon” for effective long term data retention.
IBM is the worldwide tape market share leader offering a full range of tape storage solutions including drives, autoloaders, libraries, virtual tape systems and Spectrum Archive software which can make tape as easy to use as disk. IBM continues its commitment to tape technology with the introduction of the IBM LTO Ultrium 7 tape drive (US) which represents the biggest advancement in LTO capacity and performance since the announcement of the first LTO drive in 2000.
