03 Dec 2013 StorageTek T10000D FICON [33906]
Combines world-record capacity and performance with three generations of proven enterprise-class reliability

Oracle announced the FICON version of its StorageTek T10000D tape drive, which combines world-record capacity and performance with three generations of proven enterprise-class reliability. This powerful combination enables mass consolidation of tape storage environments into fewer cartridges, tape drives, and libraries for significantly less total cost of ownership (TCO) than IBM TS1140 and LTO6.

Customer Benefits:

  • Reduce TCO by 40% vs. IBM TS1140 - Store 1 PB in the SL3000 for a list price of $162,354 with T10000D or $268,477 with TS1140 in IBM TS3500
  • Best Investment Protection - Media Reuse increases maximum capacity of existing T10000C-written media from 5.5 TB to 8.5 TB and reads T10000A, T10000B, & T10000C-written media
  • Highest capacity - up to 8.5 TB Native Capacity
  • Highest Data Transfer Rate - 252 MB/sec (uncompressed) or up to 800 MB/sec (compressed)

02 Aug 2012 Oracle’s StorageTek Tape Storage Solutions Enable Deep Data Archiving at CalTech [27097]
System Planned to Scale at the Rate of 1 PB Annually

To accommodate archiving of the enormous volume of data generated by its Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) Project, the California Institute of Technology has implemented Oracle’s StorageTek tape libraries and drives. The LIGO Laboratory migrated 12 years of observations (2.9 Petabytes PB) in 2011 to a system comprising Oracle’s StorageTek T10000C drives throughout. This delivered 25x the capacity and up to 8x the performance at the observatories and 5x the capacity and up to 2x the performance at the central repository, enabling annual scalability at the rate of up to 1 PB per year from the next generation Advanced LIGO experiment.
