SlideShare: Five Reasons Modern Data Centers Need Tape

To some, tape storage may seem like an outdated technology in the era of NAS and object-based storage. But— here’s a surprise – tape today is more relevant than ever. Even the most modern data centers can benefit from its low cost of ownership, scalability, reliability and security. In our on demand webinar, Storage Switzerland is joined by Spectra Logic, Fujifilm and Iron Mountain to discuss why tape use shouldn’t just continue but actually expand, including in hybrid cloud environments.

Many IT professionals are familiar with tape and have leveraged the numerous advantages the technology has to offer. But for those less familiar or new to tape the webinar will start with:

  • Tape Media and Tape Library Basics
    • How does tape work?
    • How is it different than other storage technologies?

Our panel of experts will then discuss five use cases where tape media is ideally suited for:

  • Active Backup
  • Active Archive
  • Analytics
  • Ransomware Protection
  • Storage Cost Reduction
