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

Cover

Arguably, the most important news in data storage in 2013 will have nothing to do with hard disks or Flash SSDs or cloud storage. 

With the advent of free file system technology, partitioned media from nearly all tape vendors, and Barium-Ferrite (BaFe) coating plus Type II Perpendicular Recording, tape is making a comeback that most analysts once deemed impossible.  In this podcast, expert Jon Toigo looks at:

  • LTFS technology and how you can use it to build a mass capacity file server based on tape 
  • 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
  • And more!
