Podcast: Back to the Future: How Linear Tape File System (LTFS) and Other Innovations Are Returning Tape to a Production Storage Role in the Data Center

- The productization of Tape NAS for those who prefer to buy rather than build
- The markets and workloads that this innovative kit could potentially support
