About this talk

“Tape is dead" is an overplayed mantra that has been heralded by disk and flash vendors for more than a decade. Nothing could be further than the truth. With data growth ever expanding, the role of tape in large enterprise IT environments and hyperscale data centers has never been more secure or significant. In this session, we'll consider the role of tape in hyperscale data centers and why the world's largest IT infrastructures are so reliant on tape to meet their massive data storage requirements. We'll discuss: • The intriguing attributes and economics of tape-based data • Key architectural characteristics of large tape-based infrastructures • How hyperscalers simplify access to tape-based data and reduce management overhead
