Hadoop, Web 2.0 get a path to tape for cheap long-term storage

Stephen Lawson | Oct. 11, 2013
An appliance designed for Web 2.0 companies may take them back to the future with tape storage.

That's cheaper than long-term storage based on hard drives or cloud storage services, and users can access the data as often as they want at no extra cost, which isn't always the case with cloud storage, Rector said. Tape is also the most space-efficient storage technology and has a typical shelf life of 30 years, according to the company.

The BlackPearl is available for beta testing now and set to go on sale in December. The Hadoop DS3 client and the Spectra Logic Developer Program for enterprises and software vendors are available now.
