Why Tape?

Have you thought about  tape lately? Why do users continue to backup and archive to tape libraries? It is:

  • Fast – and faster than disk, as a matter of fact. Tape can help you achieve faster backup windows with up to 280 MB/s compressed transfer rate per drive.
  • Far more reliable than it was a decade ago. Tape's durability has vastly improved and now leverages built-in intelligence systems.
  • The most affordable storage medium available. From its low acquisition cost to growth capability and high energy-efficiency, tape gives you the most bang for your buck.

At Spectra Logic, we understand tape's inherent value in the data center and work to make tape better for you. We have dedicated ourselves to innovating tape automation by addressing the ongoing issues that face the backup and archive environment. We've developed a set of enhanced processes with innovative management tools that lead you through a better backup and archive experience. Only with Spectra you can realize tape's full potential.
