Tape for Backup: Here to Save the Day?


It goes without saying that an archive is more than just a collection of data. Much more.

In fact, as a result of organizational requirements, operational necessity, and external regulations, data archiving and management is a mandate for IT practitioners of all stripes, regardless of one’s particular role.
