Can we read by that, that even given the huge number of tape solutions already in the marketplace that the usage of tape is fading away? Of course. And, my apologies if this just “isn’t news” anymore: I can promise that there are many out there that are still slow to get the message:- if you want to use your archive, tape is fast becoming an obsolete technology… it’s unable to provide the data services modern media organisations require like fast access for clips, AI analysis, or content distribution. Perhaps worse, if you are planning data retrieval for 3-10 years out, is may be very difficult source machines and tapes for.
So what’s replacing tape?
