50TB Tape

Recommended Posts

I know there are several of you who manage tape...who's in for a few 50TB cartridges? I can't imagine what these are going to cost...

This joint team demonstrated a world-record*1 areal density of 45.0 Gb/in2 *2 in linear formatted perpendicular magnetic recording media. This latest technology*4 is a future technology after coated tape generations and enables over 50 TB capacity per a standard tape cartridge, which equals to 33 times*5 larger than a capacity of the latest LTO Ultrium 5 data cartridge.

For transportation - these would be great.

We routinely ship 8-10 tape cartridiges halfway around the globe. being able to consolidate all into 1 would be great. But thats assuming the cost can be justified.
