Access Time and Throughput Take Off
Tape performance has improved for access times and throughput. As the information age embraces larger throughput loads from archives, streaming media, cloud services, big data, DR and the IoT, the performance gains tape has and will continue to make are becoming increasingly important. Tape has now emerged as the top choice for both archive data storage and transferring large amounts of data. Future roadmaps indicate tape will make major strides in capacity, reliability, total cost of ownership and overall performance.
