After examining the TCO of object storage vs. LTO tape, and seeing the benefits achieved in a real-world case study, it’s easy to understand why object storage is quickly becoming the standard for data storage, backup, archive, and recovery.
It’s clear that when all costs associated with data storage are tracked, object storage beats tape storage hands down. And even with costs aside, on-premises object storage with Cloudian provides businesses with the flexibility they need to respond to changing technology environments, storage requirements, data monetization opportunities, and more.

Increased regulatory scrutiny on the protection levels afforded sensitive information by those that transact and process it is causing enterprises to improve mainframe security strategies. This entails proactively investigating exposures and implementing appropriate policies, processes and technologies, including those for data z/OS tape encryption. Read this Technology Brief created by CA to learn how to identify exposure points and through the use of Tape Encryption.
Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.
The new disk-based backup products geared to small to medium enterprise (SME) businesses are being enhanced with enterprise-class product features at prices that are getting less and less expensive, making it feasible to back up from disk to removable disks and do away with tape backups altogether.

We are living in an age of explosive data growth. IDC projects that the digital universe is growing 50% a year, doubling in size every 2 years. In media and entertainment, the growth is even faster as capacity-intensive formats such as 4K, 8K, and 360/VR gain traction. Fortunately, new trends in data storage are making it easier to stay ahead of the curve.
In this paper, we will examine how object storage stacks up against LTO tape for media archives and backup. In addition to a detailed total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis covering both capital and operational expenses, this paper will look at the opportunity costs of not leveraging the real-time data access of object storage to monetize existing data.
Finally, we will demonstrate the validity of the analysis with a real-world case study of a longstanding network TV show that made the switch from tape to object storage.
The limitations of tape storage go way beyond its lack of scalability. Data that isn’t searchable is becoming
