While there is still some talk predicting the death of tape, the reality is quite the opposite. More significant than tape’s survival in the backup environment is its emergence as the preferred medium in two other critical areas: archiving and large-file processing.

With ample capacities and throughput complemented by new capabilities such as files system indexing, tape is the best suited medium for storing archival data. And for industries that routinely deal with extremely large files, tape has become the ideal medium to store and stream large files for video production, genomic studies and geo research.

Check out this presentation to learn more about tape and why it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
