The Archival Upheaval 2018

SUMMARY:

Archive storage growth and requirements seem to have no limits while tape technology continues to make tremendous strides – what timing! The future role of tape in archival storage cannot be denied and the sizeable cost savings of using tape compared to disk for archival storage promises to become even more compelling in the future. Tape densities will continue to grow, and tape costs will steadily decline, while disk drive performance is expected to remain flat and capacity growth rates have slowed. .
