Oracle announced the StorageTek T10000C tape drive, which provides the highest performance, lowest total cost of ownership at one-third to one-fifth the floor space of any tiered storage, archive or backup solution.
Oracle’s StorageTek tiered storage solutions incorporate the advantages of both disk and tape, and deliver the most scalable, cost efficient and energy-efficient storage solutions for heterogeneous data protection, consolidation, archiving and cloud environments.
The StorageTek T10000C is the industry’s fastest and highest capacity tape drive with a 5TB native capacity and 240MB/second native throughput – more than 3x the capacity, and 50 to 70 percent faster than any other tape drive, including LTO-5 and the IBM TS1130.
[advt]Compared to disk-only solutions from EMC, Oracle’s StorageTek solution scales to 30x the capacity, and 50x the performance, while requiring 99 percent less power and cooling.
The capacity and throughput increase helps customers drastically reduce the cost of enterprise storage, while providing the fastest backup and archive solutions.
Oracle’s StorageTek tape storage solutions are the first to scale to an exabyte (1000 PB, with 2:1 compression) to handle the world’s largest archive and long-term backup requirements.
The solutions include in-line encryption which provides the critical data protection that enterprise customers demand while remaining completely transparent to the application and without any performance degradation.
With the first exabyte capacity tape system, Oracle stores 17x more data in one tape library unit and provides 5x more performance than IBM, and more than 30x the capacity and 50x the performance of EMC’s disk solutions.
The StorageTek T10000C tape drive extends Oracle’s leadership in providing an integrated data protection solution with Oracle 11g Recovery Manager, Oracle Secure Backup and Oracle’s Sun Storage Archive Manager software running with Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux, and Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle’s Sun SPARC Enterprise Servers, Oracle’s Sun Fire x86 clustered systems and Oracle’s Sun Storage and Oracle’s StorageTek Tape.
