Backup to Tape Media or Hard Disk Drive

Is a tape in the hand worth two in the bush?

By now we all know that the ONLY smart, sensible, intelligent thing to do is to back up your data onto disk. Tape is for the birds, outdated and hardly sexy. Yes, disk is definitely the way to go. Except, it’s not.

HP came out with this great viral video on tape media vs. disk for backup. 

Recap of the video is that tape is still not only a viable storage medium but it can still be the best way to store your data. Tape is less expensive, uses less energy is more reliable and is faster than disk! Sure the video is bias but worth watching.

Enjoy.
