Can Helium Drives can be alternative for LTO Tapes?

Recommended Posts

Can Helium drives (such as Seagate Exos) used as an alternative for LTO Tapes in terms of Longer duration?
What is life of Helium drives if they are kept in Shelves after archiving data? In case of Normal Air HDD, we need to spin up the drives every three months atleast.

There's not any difference I'm aware of, but the economics of tape for that role is still much better.
