"Unstructured data growth is out of control. And when you have to hold onto data for compliance reasons or, for any federal requirements, state, local international, for that matter, you have to be able to protect that data for the long-term in a cost-effective manner--which isn't just related to the media. It's related to the power and to the cooling, and to all of the associated factors with data center footprint. Tape allows for extreme density. Extremely low power utilization, extremely low utilization of air conditioning. So it is one of the most environmentally friendly data protection methods that is available today. And that's why all the hyper-scalers use tape for whatever they call deep or cold storage."
