Tape Libraries: Why, When and Where?

A technology publication that shall go unnamed posted the news last year that Amazon Glacier was a “tape-killing cloud” and that it would “devastate the [tape] industry.”

Not exactly. We do believe that smaller tape implementations are going the way of the dodo bird. Cloud backup is quickly replacing small standalone tape drives and autoloaders for daily backup, and as low-end tape equipment ages IT replaces it with cloud for long-term backup retention.

However, tape housed in mid-sized and enterprise scale libraries are growing strongly in several high-value computing and industry segments. Thus the question for IT becomes not “Should I use tape?” but “When should I invest in tape libraries?”

Backup Balancing Act: Growing Pains with Data Backup and the Cost of Migration

Backup these days is, as I view it, an incredibly interesting topic. Data protection has always been a challenging operation for the business. When you think about it, it is one of the most physical of systems, requiring tremendous amounts of data movement and storage - moving and storing the same bits over and over again with such requirements for speed and then storage that the task has at many different times in the history of IT seemed like mission impossible.
