When backing up the entire business's digital activity, some businesses still prefer to do it on a physical media. This can be due both to the lower price the magnetic tape has and the longer shelf life of an LTO tape compared to a normal mechanical hard drive.
The speed and capacity of LTO tapes has increased significantly over the years. If you have an older tape drive, you will be able to achieve a faster read/write speed by replacing your machine. Alternatively, you can switch to a more modern server solution. Here you can use mechanical hard drives (HDD) or the lightning-fast SSD hard drives.
