Fujifilm Illustrates Cost, Reliability and Energy Savings Benefits of Advanced Data Tape Storage
VALHALLA, N.Y., February 26, 2015 – What’s the future of big data storage, and how will it be reliably and cost-effectively stored? That’s the question recently addressed by FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of FUJIFILM Corporation, the leading global manufacturer of data storage tape. Fujifilm, which produces more modern data tape than any other manufacturer, created a simple infographic comparison between tape and disk that shows from capacity and speed to energy consumption, tape is better than disk for big data storage.
New innovations pioneered by Fujifilm, including NANOCUBIC technology that incorporates Barium Ferrite (BaFe) particles, offer superior performance and longer archival life and yield unprecedented cartridge capacity increases, improved bit error rates and superior economics to previous tape or disk technology.
“Data is growing at an extraordinary rate, and every organization will face the challenge of storing that data reliably and economically,” said Peter Faulhaber, president, FUJIFILM Recording Media USA, Inc. “With Fujifilm’s modern tape technology, customers can count on larger capacities, longer media life, and dramatic energy and cost benefits. Thanks to the ongoing innovations happening today and in the future, data tape will remain a major player in storage for many years to come.”
