18 Apr 2017 LTO Program Breaks Year-Over-Year Records for Tape Shipment [62592]
HPC Wire, April 18th 2017

The LTO Program Technology Provider Companies (TPCs) -Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM and Quantum - released their annual tape media shipment report, detailing quarterly and year-over-year shipments.

The report shows a record 96,000 petabytes (PB) of total compressed tape capacity shipped in 2016, an increase of 26.1 percent over the previous year. Greater LTO-7 tape technology density as well as the continuous growth in LTO-6 tape technology shipments were key contributors to this increase.

To help illustrate the monumental amount of tape capacity shipped in 2016, if you consider 1GB is equivalent to ~9 meters of books lined up on a shelf, a single PB would equal enough books to line a shelf stretching 9,144 kilometers long. To extend this analogy for a complete comparison, the amount of books required to represent 96,000PB of data could construct a ladder connecting Jupiter to the Sun with nearly 100 million kilometers of books to spare!

15 Mar 2017 Economic Value Of LTO Tape For Long-Term Data Retention [61538], March 15th, 2017

"ESG was engaged by the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Program, a consortium of LTO-based technology providers, to develop a detailed economic analysis of the LTO tape specification, which is the basis for many high-capacity, high- performance, and high-integrity tape storage products in production today. The analysis is designed to help IT organizations compare the fully burdened costs of leveraging modern LTO-based solutions for long-term data retention with a 'present mode of operation' (PMO) that represents alternative all-disk storage approaches. This analysis builds upon ESG's evaluation of current-generation LTO products, the forward-looking LTO Ultrium technology roadmap, in-depth interviews with technical stakeholders at The LTO Program's member organizations (HPE, IBM, and Quantum), additional qualitative and quantitative market research conducted by ESG with IT decision makers, and ESG's general familiarity with storage products and trends..."
