Very happy to see LTO keep evolving. I think many folks out there are a bit scared of tape because they didn’t have a chance for hands-on. Thank you for sharing @vNote42

Thanks for sharing this video @JMeixner and thanks @vNote42 for sharing this information.

 

I agree @haslund, tape has always been a weaker point for me. A lot of companies prefer USB for smaller data sizes because it is familiar. And with the cloud, people keep talking about “the end of tape”, truth is, the only thing with higher density than tape for offline is having a NAS/SAN that you power off and rotate, and that’s just not practical for organisations, it doesn’t scale as well and is certainly less economically efficient.
