Tape libraries still have a place in the modern datacenter due to their ability to provide high-capacity storage backup with a low total cost of ownership. Scalability, virus and data stability, mobility, and support of compliance add to physical tapes value in the datacenter. While LTO technology continues to bring advancements in both speed and compression, it still requires an outage to get a true point in time backup. We see a huge value in coupling a robust tape backup solution with other more rapid point in time backup solutions like disk to disk or Flashcopy, found in IBM’s Storwize external SAN storage family.
