Tape storage is used for data backup in case of system failure and for archiving data for long-term storage.
The long term retention of data including the archiving of data, regulatory and legal holds are all critical to the business. Tape helps to lower carbon impact, TCO, and energy consumption of long term data retention.
Tests confirm the advantages of combining tape, flash and software-defined storage in a single low-cost solution.
Full range of tape storage capabilities including drives, autoloaders, libraries, virtual tape systems, and IBM Storage Archive software.
Simple, cost-effective tape-based data storage technology is virtually impervious to cyberattacks and is already in your data center.
Tape combines long product lifecycles with low embedded and operational carbon
footprint to support your sustainability initiatives.
Eliminate the ransomware cycle of infection and re-infection by creating a data copy
that is essentially impossible for hackers to corrupt.
