Lowering Storage Costs with the World's First Five Terabyte Tape Drive
Explosive data growth is causing storage costs to skyrocket, which is forcing IT organizations to look for more cost-effective archival and backup solutions. To cope with today's explosive data growth, many IT organizations are using a tiered storage approach that balances the cost of different types of storage media against application performance requirements. Oracle's StorageTek tape product family has maintained a market leadership position for many years and now includes the tape drive. A single Oracle tape library unit can now house more than an exabyte of data1 and can offer cost savings of up to 20% compared to other tape vendors.
