In computer storage, a tape library, sometimes called a tape silo, tape
robot or tape jukebox, is a storage  device that contains one o more tape
drives, a number of slots o hold tape cartridges, a barcode reader to
identify tape cartridges and an automated method for loading tapes
(a robot). Addiotionally, the area where tapes that are not currently in a
in a silo are stored is also called a tape library. Tape libraries can
contain millions of tapes.

These devices can store immense amounts of data, ranging from 20 terabytesr
up to 2.1 exabytes of data as of 2016. Such capacity is multiple thousand
times that of a typical  hard drive and well in excess of what is capable
with network attached storage.Typical entry-level solutions costs around
$10.000 USD, while high-end solutions can start at as much as $200.000 USD
and costs well in excess of $1 million for a fully expanded and configured

For large data-storag, they are a cost-effective solution, with cost per
gigabyte as low as 2 cents USD. The tradeoff for their larger capacity is
their slower access time, which usually involves mechanical manipulation
of tapes. Access to data in a library takes from several seconds to several



In coomputer, mass storage refers to the storage of large amounts of data
in a persisting and machine-readable fashion.Devices  and/or systems that
have been described as mass storage include tape libraries, RAID systems,
and variety of computers drive such as hard disk drives, magnetic tape
magnetooptical disc drives, optical disc drives, memory cards, and solid-
states drives.

There are two broad classes of mass storage: local data in devices such as
smarthphones or computers, and enterprise servers and data centers for the
cloud. For local storage, SSDs are on the way to replacing HDDs.Considering
the mobile segment from phones to notebooks, the mayority of the system
today is based on NAND Flash.As Enterprise data centers, storage tiers have
established using mix of SSD and HDD.

Mass storage devices used in desktop and most server computers typically
their data organized in a file system. The choice of file system is often
important in maximizing the preformance of the device.



Tape has been used for decades to preserve and protect data, and today more
than ever tape is the best choice for long term storage. Not only that,but
tape has emerged as a key part of cloud and hyperscale infrastructures. The
biggest data center on the planet are using tape, and using it extensively.

Companies are dealing with a challenge of storing petabytes, and exabytes
of unstructured data- video, hi-res images, loT data, research data, really
valuable stuff- and they need to keep it fpr decades.

Further, in Enterprise, CIOS and IT departments are converned with the
threat of rasonware. Because tape storage is an 'offine' storage
technology, it provides efffective protection against ransomeare and
