Over a 10-year period, the average tape storage solution yields over $13 million in approximate cost savings.
LTO tape is the basis for a wide variety of high-capacity and performance-intensive products and applications today, but a recent study sought to discover its true strategic value.
In addition to the $13 million in savings over a 10-year period, LTO solutions provide significant value by:
- Lessening total cost of ownership
- Reducing necessity of solution expenditures (in failure events, for example)
- Decreasing IT operational costs
- Increasing productivity
- Accommodating fast-growth data
- Retaining information reliably
- Providing high-integrity storage
- Having low startup and maintenance costs
Compared with disk-based storage, organizations save an additional $400,000 by opting for tape. As a result, LTO tape provides the best economic value as a long-term data retention solution.
