17 Mar 2015 Top Tips for Implementing Data Storage Tape [41527]
Enterprise Storage Group, March 17, 2015

"How things change. For years, even decades, people have been getting rid of tape. They bought into the idea that disk was the way to go and that tape was 'old hat.'

But the realities of a Big Data world and the advances in tape technology, density, reliability and usability have brought the realization to many that they shouldn't have been so hasty. And that's showing up in the raw numbers. According to the Active Archive Alliance, nearly 250 million Linear Tape Open (LTO) tape cartridges have been shipped since the format's inception. That's more than 100,000 PB of data on LTO..."

11 Sep 2014 No TKO for LTO: Tape format spawns another 2 generations, sports 120TB bigness [38339]
The Register, September 11th, 2014

"The LTO consortium has added two more generations to its tape format roadmap, extending it out to LTO-10 and a 120TB compressed capacity.

The roadmap used to finish at LTO-8, and that version of the LTO tape format future was announced in April 2010. Now, four-and-a-half years later, it has been extended again.

Compression is reckoned to be 2.5:1. Basically raw capacity is doubling every generation with compressed capacity increasing 2.5 times per generation. Transfer speeds are increasing at less than 2X per generation..."

01 Jun 2011 IBM and Fujifilm Show Super Dense Storage Tape for Big Data Work [36652]
InfoWorld, May 20th, 2014

"Anticipating a storage crunch spurred by big data, IBM and Fujifilm are advancing the state of art in magnetic tape with a prototype capable of storing 85.9 billion bits of data per square inch," writes Joab Jackson in InfoWorld.

"In an industry standard LTO size cartridge, tape like that could store up to 154 terabytes of uncompressed data. Today's LTO version 6 cartridge holds 2.5 terabytes..."

19 May 2014 Whomp! There It Is: IBM Demos 154tb Tape [36597]
The Register, May 19th, 2014

"IBM and Fujifilm have demoed a 154TB LTO-size tape cartridge which could come to market in 10 years' time.

While it falls short of the Sony 185TB development, it should, with IBM's tape partnerships, see Sony exit the field.

The Sony development involved a 148Gbit/in^2 tape density and its own tape design to achieve a 185TB uncompressed capacity. IBM has been working with Fujifilm to extend today's Barium Ferrite (BaFe) tape particle technology to achieve 85.9Gbit/in^2..."
