Many companies use disk-based systems for short-term backup and tape systems for long-term data retention. This approach provides the benefit of staging recently generated data on a disk backup system, providing simpler restores, while leveraging tape’s lower TCO (total cost of ownership) for long-term data retention and archiving.
Additionally, tape is the primary element in most disaster recovery and business contingency plans, with tapes being stored off-site in case of fire, sabotage, natural disaster, or other such calamities.
