Nearly Half the World’s Data Is Stored on Tape—And That’s Great News. See Why.

It’s not old school, it’s smart school. But what are you supposed to do when some (disk-only) vendor says things like “tape is expensive,” or outdated, or unreliable?
Long-standing myths about tape storage are not just debunked, they’re held up to the light, shredded to bits, and discarded like yesterday’s news. You’ll learn that:

- Tape provides the best archival foundation for modern tiered storage solutions
- Tape is about 4 million times more reliable than disk (really)
- Tape is secure
