This 2012 Tape Summit was extremely successful and had lead to the creation of a tape industry unified messaging group that is working together to promote all the great benefits of the tape industry.
If you are interested in participation in a future Tape Summit, please contact us. Thank you.
“The Tape Summit is designed to bring a strong, cohesive message to all the market about the state of tape. The industry is under siege from Disk, Big Data and EMC. Press and analysts understand what individual speeds and feeds each tape company offers in the media, drives and library. What they don’t understand or are not clear on is what the use cases are, what the future is, or how tape plays a role in markets such as archive. They think of it simply as a backup target.
We all as vendors do a good job representing our technology. But there is no one really representing the industry of tape. That is what Tape Summit is all about. We need to keep the market we are selling our products in to healthy first. Then compete on our products second.”
