About Tape Storage

Tape storage is a system in which magnetic tape is used as a recording media to store data.

With data volumes growing rapidly worldwide, tape storage is the most suitable system for data storage requiring large capacity. Tape storage is not used only for backup in case of system failure, but also for archiving data for long-term storage.

  • Tape Storage System

    Although the components of a tape storage system vary depending on numerous factors, it generally consists of magnetic tape media (e.g. LTO), tape drives and tape automation. Software controls the reading and writing of data.


Magnetic Tape Systems

Magnetic tape systems come in three kinds of formats. One is LTO, which is an open format, while the others are special formats developed by IBM and Oracle.


Software Developed for Tape Storage

Do not take that magnetic tape is an outdated product. Technical innovations and functional improvement continue. We introduce here the latest technologies.


Tape Drives and Tape Automation

A tape drive is a device that reads and writes data. Tape automation is an external storage device that contains a lot of tape cartridges, multiple drives and a robot machine that identifies each cartridge and loads it to the drives.
