IBM tape libraries and tape automation

Overview

Why IBM tape libraries? 

Typically, 80% or more of data is either never or infrequently accessed after 90 days. Tape is the optimal media for storage of this cold data, which has lower performance requirements than active data does. Relying on IBM tape drives and libraries instead of disk storage for long-term data retention makes it possible to dramatically reduce the cost of storing growing amounts of data. 

IBM offers a full range of tape libraries and autoloaders featuring high performance and capacity for entry-level, midrange and enterprise system environments.
