Tape without Pain

Tape, far from being dead, is increasingly necessary in data centers-and as the emphasis on the green data center continues, tape will become increasingly important. Its future provides additional possibilities not available through the use of other storage methods, including disk. Tape is, and will continue to be, indispensible. At the same time, Spectra Logic promises to continue its long history and successful methods of providing tape without pain.

Does Tape Still Make Sense?

This whitepaper investigates the attributes of tape technology in a backup system and explores the ramifications of eliminating tape. By addressing the issue of what you lose when you remove tape this paper strives to answer the question of whether tape still has a place in a current data protection system.

Tape Storage - Total Cost of Ownership

This paper focuses on the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a data storage product or solution. To the point, it will concentrate on the short and long-term cost factors associated with owning or operating your gear and why you should be thinking about them when you buy. It will also provide a simple, theoretical TCO analysis as an example of what may be done when assessing purchase options. From this, you may quickly realize that highly discounted purchase prices up front do not always result in long-term cost savings to your firm.
