Many market trends have converged giving way to a voracious hunger for faster, better, bigger solutions to storage back-up systems. The growth of data applications have brought with them very large databases that require backing up on a constant.
With multimedia, video editing, financial analysis, data warehousing, medical imaging and engineering we are facing storage-intensive applications. There are distributed and networked systems, Storage Area Networks (SAN), mission-critical applications and global enterprises that have all managed to shrink that available window for safety backups and archiving data in order to maintain a robust and highly reliable disaster recovery plan.
There are the abuses of frequent use, hostile environments or shipping, all of which can take a toll. These systems provide mid-range tape storage, vaulting, recovery, archiving, multimedia and near on-line storage hierarchies with extraordinary performance and reliability while allowing for immense storage capacity.
DLT tape makes use of linear serpentine multi-track recording in single reel cartridges. There is no need for a capstan as tape is pulled from the cartridge by a leader tape that is buckled to the cartridge leader in the process of loading.
AIT tape is a high-speed, high-capacity magnetic tape data storage format that uses a cassette similar to Video8. It uses a helical scan read/write method that is both backward and forward compatible allowing for multiple generations of tape drives.
