E-Guide: The birth of Tape NAS

E-Guide: The birth of Tape NAS

Cover

Tape may have been first utilized for storage and data backup long ago, but today's tape technology has grown in capabilities and reliability, and has proved that it can keep up with the data surge barraging our infrastructures. One inefficiency that did remain through the years, however, was the issue of accessing stored data - tape has never had file-based access. Now, though, that problem has been resolved.

An emerging capability of tape, termed tape NAS, allows for access to files as if they were on disk. This new technology, utilizing LTFS and network-attached storage (NAS), writes data to tape in a persistent format, which ensures data access from any platform from that point on. Check out this expert resource to explore the specs of this emerging technology and learn what companies can benefit most from this storage solution.
