LTO Benefits Part 2 – Cost
LTO.org states that while cost per gigabyte for both tape and disk continue to shrink, tape maintains its advantage over disk when the overall total cost of ownership – energy, floor space and equipment – is taken into account.
“LTO technology is the lowest cost for storage in the foreseeable future in the data storage market. Initial cost isn’t the only benefit however, as LTO tape continues to offer the best cost per gigabyte over the entire life span of the
data when compared to other options.”- LTO.org
