Benefits of Tape Archive Solutions

In today’s world, every business is looking forwards to maintaining excellent
backup of their data. In such scenarios, tape backups are brilliant options for storing your information. Tape backup has some significant advantages. Let us take a look at a few of them:

Lower Costs:
Well, as a business owner or a business manager, you will fall in love with the tape backup systems as they are pocket friendly. So, you do not need to spend a huge amount of money in order to store your data well. Also, this solution is quite efficient when you want to transfer a huge quantity of data from one place to the other.

Tapes Provide Scalability:
Tapes are scalable. All you need to do is keep adding more tapes whenever needed. This is not only cost effective but also convenient. On the contrary, buying more hard disks is a huge task and is very expensive. You will need to invest in added power and cooling for these disks. Well, that’s not all; you will require more space and other materials. 

Less Power:
Tapes consume much less power than other storage devices. Moreover, disk drives have to run to be used. On the other hand, the tape drives run only when the data is being used i.e. they run only when data is either being read or being written. This ensures that less power is utilized and gives a great advantage to the user.

Legacy Data:
Majorly, all the backup software supports tape and the interface of the tape. It is easier to maintain data on these tapes rather than changing to a new medium. It is a well supported technology and thus managing enormous legacy data easily. 

Tape drives are easy to use and storing data in these drives is a painless process.
