  • Our customers see tape as critical to their business, which is why Oracle continues to invest in, and expand upon, over 40 years of tape expertise .With this depth of experience, dating back to the 1970s, Oracle’s StorageTek tape solutions have been providing economical long-term storage for some of the most demanding environments in the world, including many of the largest-financial institutions-high performance computing and research environments-government entities and moreWe have developed a robust and highly differentiated portfolio including the:-SL8500 and SL3000 enterprise tape libraries, which span from 200 slots to 100,000 slots-the highest-capacity enterprise tape drive in the world, the T10000C tape drive -the Virtual Storage Manager for mainframe tiered storage, now in it’s 5th generation-and the newly released StorageTek Tape Analytics software, which offers unprecedented visibility and data security for our libraries

  • The bottom line is that while disk based solutions can sometimes give you shorter response times, but tape is way more efficient, which is why 78% of enterprises use both disk and tape in data protection for a tiered solution.Source: Gartner Reveals Best Practices for Data Backup White Paper, June 15 2011.
