    Tapes never left, not for long term storage anyway.

    Tape is how full recovery and long-term backups are actually done:

    Backups on HD are too expensive. A 16TB tape costs about $90 or so. That's much cheaper than a 16TB HD.

    Yup, we use it in our company to backup data. Very effective, plus tape stores data without corruption for longest time.

    so 16TB tape priced around 2TB HDD price
    but then again the tape drive is not cheap right ?
    around $1500 from what i look on newegg

    but yeah size-wise and long-term seems still better than hdd cost

    mostly curious to read/write speed, but at those desnity who would care about speed, it more about capacity then again this wont be mainstream thing for data storage either from what i gather

    Yeap, i bought a 4tb last year think it would be enough, how naive i was. lol

    At this stage i think to give some headroom 10tb would be standard now. just for some leg room. :(
