Should SMBs Be Still Using Tape Backup?

ITBusinessEdge: Should SMBs Be Still Using Tape Backup?

Tape backup is still the cheapest per gigabit, still the most robust for taking backups off site, and it can be combined with other backup modes, Tandberg Data executives argue.

“I had the opportunity to speak with two business unit managers from Tandberg Data last week about the benefits of tape. Tandberg Data came on my radar recently due to the release of its eight-disk RDX QuikStation that can be deployed either as individual iSCSI targets or as an emulated tape drive. The company says the RDX QuikStation is especially suited for SMBs due to its versatile deployment options and affordability.

Curious about the role of tape in the current cloud-centric landscape, I wanted to learn whether the venerable, decades-old technology is still relevant to businesses, specifically SMBs. I spoke with Ted Oade and Simon Anderson from Tandberg Data, who gave me the low-down on why tape is still relevant and practical in an SMB today.”
