'Why tape storage remains relevant' is the main topic of discussion in this whitepaper. Rather than becoming extinct, Greg Schulz argues, that the role of tape in data storage is evolving and complementary of other storage management methods. For example, disk-based data protection devices such as the Quantum DXi-Series provide virtual tape library (VTL) tape emulation along with file or NAS based backup capability for coexistence with existing software and data protection process.
