The new library replaces three previous models.
Performance and capacity of tape drives continues to increase. The StorageTek T10000B has a capacity of 1TB and throughput of 120 MB/s, LTO-5 has a capacity of 1.5TB and throughput of 140 MB/s, and the StorageTek T10000C has a capacity of 5TB and throughput of 240 MB/s. This paper discusses the importance of key specifications typically used to evaluate tape drive performance.
Oracle introduces its first StorageTek drive since its acquisition of Sun last yeat. The StorageTek T100000C scales up to 5 TB and has a maximum of 240 MBps throughput.
The Sun Microsystems implosion into Oracle is finally getting the push it needs. EU regulators have given their nod to the deal so Oracle head honchos will be meeting in days to iron out the new battle plan. It would be interesting to see what remains and what goes. Here are my few thoughts plus excerpt from the former heads at Sun.
Scientists at Cern's LHC say dozens of petabytes require custom-built NAS systems and data migration software, but commercial tape drives are mostly up to snuff.
