TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Report – Global Tape Automation Market 2011–2015
TechNavio today launched its Global Tape Automation Market 2011–2015 report based on an in-depth study covering the Americas and the EMEA and APAC regions. The report aims to aid decision makers’ understanding of the present and the future landscape of the market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Data Centers team said, “The market is focused on the mid-range market. The current demand for tape automation products is for compact and small libraries. Both of these are showing positive growth. Almost 99 percent of the mid-range market is dominated by LTO technology. The overall LTO market is growing at a very fast pace despite the fact that the Tape Automation market declined in 2011.”
According to the report, despite the fact that disc storage is becoming more popular than tape storage, disks are generally fixed as an integral part of a data storage system. However, some vendors are offering removable disks. Tape storage, on the other hand, is highly portable and can be easily removed and stored off site. Tapes are also easy to manage and handle due to their light weight. This has led to an increase in the usage of tape storage.
The report also reveals that the main challenge faced by users of tape storage is the cost involved in maintaining it.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key players.
