The Rebirth of Tape: Tape's Changing Role and Ever-Increasing Advantages Over Disk are Leading to its Resurgence

SESSION: Moving, Managing, and Storing Data

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums

TIME: 2:30PM - 3:00PM


Presenter(s):Kevin Horn



Not only is the role of tape evolving to meet the colossal storage needs of cloud service providers and other emerging applications, tape storage density and performance is expected to continue to increase for many years to come. As we will discuss in this session, advances in disk storage density and performance have slowed considerably - a big reason why some analysts predict disk technology will become increasingly rare as flash and tape become the preferred storage mediums for the majority of active and inactive data, respectively. In this session, find out what the industry is saying about the bright future of tape and learn the key benefits of incorporating tape technology into your backup and archive storage environments.
