Be Green with Tape

Be Green With Tape

When factoring in the features and benefits of tape storage — such as reliability, portability, encryption (LTO-4, LTO-5 and LTO-6), and the shelf life (over 30 years) of tape cartridges — it is the perfect solution for your long-term or short-term backup or archiving needs. In addition, when tape media is stored, it does not require energy until it needs to be accessed. By using zero energy when stored, tape is "naturally" Green.
