How to optimize your backup tape rotation strategy
sponsored by Quantum Corporation

Tape rotation is an essential part of backing up to tape and creating an effective data backup strategy. Here’s a look at the most common backup tape rotation schemes and the pros and cons of each. An effective data backup system using tape requires more than one tape set. A tape set is the number of tapes needed to do the appropriate backup. If a full backup takes two tapes, then two tapes constitute a tape set. If you do incremental backups on weekdays that only take one tape per backup, then your tape set for those days is one tape.
