Tape media, drive and library technology advances with increasing capacity and innovations aimed at making data more accessible. While many shops have moved to disk for backup, tape systems are still the go-to for long term data retention, as tape is still the most cost-effective method for storing massive amounts of data.

Tape libraries have become denser, allowing more data to be stored in a given footprint, while advanced robotics allow tapes to be accessed and loaded very rapidly. There are also developments happening on the software side like LTFS that allow data on tape to be read as if it were on disk. However, developments in the tape world happen slowly, and LTFS has not been integrated at the tape library level as quickly.

This handbook offers information on developments in the tape market including tape media and libraries, LTFS, tape vaulting and using tape for long-term archiving.
