How do we erase the data on tape cartridges? See the video:

It’s no secret that the data storage needs of organizations all over the globe are growing by leaps and bounds. This means that it is vital that long-term content archival and data preservation must be at the heart of organizational strategy.

To help you make the right decisions surrounding your data storage needs, we’ve compiled a handful of tips:

1. Consider LTO Tape for Storing Massive Amounts of Data
If you aren’t already aware, the LTO Consortium is continuing to impress with its newest versions of LTO tape cartridges. For instance, LTO-6 (the latest release) can store 2.5 TB on a single cartridge and boasts of a data transfer speed of 160 MBps. It also makes use of the LTFS (Linear Tape File System) for easy management of files. LTO and other tape formats are also recyclable, we buy used data tape cartridges.

2. Educate Yourself on AXF
AXF is a wrapper for a storage object. It works in a very similar manner as LTFS, allowing for files to be grouped together as they would within a file system. The coolest part of AXF is that it works with any storage technology. This means that if you’re using LTO-4, which doesn’t include LTFS, you can still easily organize data for easy retrieval.

3. Think Compatibility
One of the biggest mistakes organizations have made over the years is utilizing numerous different data storage formats and types rather than adopting standardized practices. For example, it’s quite common for one department to use one solution and another to use a completely different one.

Inevitably, at one point down the road organizations decide they want to standardize practices. This means that all data must be migrated, re-cataloged, and more -- which can be very expensive and time consuming.

4. Get the Right Technology Partners
The data storage industry is vast and quite complex.Whenever you invest in a new technology, you have just created a long lasting partnership. You’ll find yourself investing staff, time, and money into setting things up and maintaining your infrastructure as the years progress.

Make sure you invest in technologies and services that will support your needs in the future. One of the reasons we suggest LTO tape as an excellent choice for long-term archival goes far beyond its stability and ability to support massive amounts of data. We are also confident that the LTO Consortium (the organizing body behind LTO tape) will stand behind the product for years to come.
