Disk and Tape Capacity Scaling Considerations

Scaling Capacity and Performance


Data centers need to scale disk and tape capacity to meet future demands. Moving lower activity data from disk to tape will free costly disk space, therefore reducing the number of disk drives needed for future growth while improving disk drive performance and shrinking the backup window. The overall economic benefits of correctly scaling tape and disk capacity are compelling particularly as the amount of data gets larger.
