Project Digitizes Over 100,000 Hours of Holocaust Testimony April 5, 2012,
Volume 170, Issue 1
The USC Shoah Foundation Institute has selected Oracles StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives to support its ongoing project to catalogue and preserve visual testimonies from Holocaust survivors and witnesses. At 5 TB uncompressed, the StorageTek T10000C Tape Drive is the worlds highest capacity drive and enables customers to boost capacity and performance while maintaining their existing footprint. The Institutes Holocaust preservation project, now more than 80 percent complete, began in 2008 with Oracles StorageTek SL8500 Modular Library System and StorageTek T10000B Tape Drives as the cornerstone of its architecture. The Oracle solution, which also includes Oracles Sun x86 servers with Oracle Solaris and Oracle disk arrays, digitizes approximately 80 TB of data per month and is on track to finish digitization in 2013.
