enterprise and cloud deployment. With an estimated 80% of the worlds stored data now being classified as cold or archival, secondary storage represents by far the single largest storage category. The secondary storage market is currently shared by magnetic HDDs and tape, but the current rate of the HDD and tape roadmaps has slowed. As the zettabyte era accelerates, the issues of data center energy consumption and carbon emissions have become critical.

Moore will discuss the numerous improvements in tape technology that make it the optimal secondary storage choice for the foreseeable future – but can tape ever achieve that level of success?
