Tape: Does it Measure Up?

An Insider’s Guide to Data Center Modernization

Historically, organizations have relied on LTO tape as the most economical option for long-term data archiving and backup — but that is beginning to change.

The inability to access, complexity to manage, and increasing overall costs of maintaining and expanding aging tape libraries are prompting many businesses to explore other options.

This insider’s guide touches upon various aspects of modernizing your data center, starting from the drawbacks of tape to alternatives like on-prem cloud storage, and what it takes to move from legacy, tape-based storage to an object storage platform such as Cloudian® HyperStore®.
