Cloud provides tape archive alternative - Page 1 - Enterprise Infrastructure
If any storage medium deserves the "legacy" moniker, it would be magnetic
tape. But unless cloud
archiving<http://www.itworldcanada.com/tag/archiving>provides a viable
alternative, this artifact of early computing could be
around for many more years.

Magnetic tape, one of the earliest forms of storage media for computer
systems, has persisted mostly due to its low cost and generally good
reliability, depending on who you talk to. A backup mainstay for many
decades, itís now used primarily for archiving data. Its estimated 10- to
20-year lifespan (when treated nicely) makes it ideal, at least in theory,
for this purpose.
