NEW YORK, USA: Oracle announced the launch of its StorageTek T10000C tape drive, touted to be the industry’s fastest and highest capacity tape drive with a 5TB native capacity and 240MB/second native throughput.

The company also says that it is 50 to 70 percent faster than LTO-5 and IBM TS1130 and that compared to disk-only solutions from EMC, Oracle’s StorageTek solution scales 30x the capacity, and 50x the performance, while requiring 99 percent less power and cooling.

The company also claims that the tape can scale up to 1000 PB, with 2:1 compression and comes with in-line encryption.

The new tape drive also runs with third-party operating systems, open systems storage management products and mainframe storage management software.

James Cates, vice president, Hardware Development, Oracle. “The StorageTek T10000C sets the new standard in tape by storing over three times more data on a single cartridge than any other tape drive. Combining it with the StorageTek SL3000 and SL8500 libraries helps ensure that customers, regardless of size, can afford to retain critical data without concern for future scalability.”
