    In Las Vegas, Nevada, IBM scientists announced that they set a new record for storing massive amounts of Big Data on tape -- a significant update to one of the computer industry's most resilient, reliable and affordable data storage technologies. The new record of 154 terabytes is a 62 fold improvement over current tape technology. To put this into perspective, 154 terabytes is sufficient to store the text from 154 million books, which would fill a book shelf stretching from Las Vegas to Seattle, Washington. (courtesy: IBM)
