"You are out of your mind if you

think you can live without tape."

Dick Cosby, Systems Mgr.

"We installed our new LTO-5 library at our DR

site & started executing saves through a fibre

fabric in LESS THAN 30 MINUTES! I can save

more than 150TBs without any intervention."

Three month study of a businesses 22TB disk data access

Conducted by University of California, Santa Cruz

90% of the data was never accessed after being stored on disk

Another 6.5% of the data was accessed only once

U of C recommendation: move data to less expensive and less energy

consuming storage units

“tape is able to store a lot of data in a very small package”

“currently available tape drives can deliver

sequential transfer speeds that rival the fastest

hard disks available. ”

“tape media can be removed from its drive,

shipped, stored, and used years later”

Tape Cartridge Price/GB Estimates

“A stored tape cartridge draws virtually no power.”

LTO-5 Cartridge

About 4 cents / GB

“Tape continues to provide the fiscal responsibility and functional value that enterprises require

in the twenty-first century.”

The Clipper Group

The Cost Ratio for a

Terabyte Stored

Long-Term

on SATA Disk versus

LTO-4 Tape is about

23:1

For energy cost,

it is about

290:1

"We think that LTFS could be one of

the most significant developments in

the tape drive space since the

introduction of LTO itself.“

"I am shocked! This is exactly what we need!"

"You have made my dreams come true!"

"You can't see it, but I am dancing inside!"

"LTO-5 technology gives tape-less work-flow....with tape!"

"We are going to get this (LTO-5 tape and LTFS)."

"Now I can offer an LTO-5 archiving service to my movie clients."

"We have LTO-3 and are now going to go to 5 with the file system"

Digital Video Surveillance (DVS)

Broadcast Production

Content Distribution

Digital Archive

NGN (Next Generation Networks)

Clients Require:

Cost effective and efficient ways to capture

and store digital content

Repurpose the content and make it available

for both traditional and new distribution outlets

Law Enforcement:

European city government stores video evidence from city park cameras to LTO tape

Large U.S. city PD stores squad car live action video surveillance to LTO tape library

Video Archive:

Major Asian broadcaster stores video to LTO archive to save cost and maintain longevity

Large US entertainment news show stores video content to LTO tape library

Major US TV broadcaster uses LTO system for high def archive and retrieval – lowers costs

Adopt reliable tape technology to eliminate night operator expense

Address mandatory requirement for daily point-in-time backups

Eliminate complex software replication

Adopt cost effective, fast, secure and reliable off-site long-term storage

Provide 100% reliable data recovery for unplanned outage or disaster

Solution

Virtualization with…

SAN Storage servers

LTO Tape Libraries

FlashCopy data snapshots

Disaster Can Strike at Anytime in Many Forms

Hurricane Gaston August 30, 2004

14 inches of rain in 8 hours

Ground floor (Data Center) flooded with 4.5’

water for 12 hours

Total loss of hardware, networks, phone systems,

generator, utility power

Any Good News??

Yes!! We had a tape backup of 100% of our data off site, made the

night before on Tape Cartridges

Lessons Learned

Need a strategic blend of technologies - don’t put all eggs in 1 basket

Have multiple copies of critical data so you can survive

Must use offline storage which is protected from attacks and disasters-

LTO tape is perfect:

Provides critical data protection

Highest reliability, lowest cost

Economically complements DeDuplication and data Snapshots by

completing data protection process

Simple to operate, low staff training

Tape drive encryption provided for data security

Tape storage, no power cost

Highly mobile/portable: safe for low-cost shipments and storage

LTO technology enhancements more than meet demands for data
