media company Elektrofilm chose
tape library to store its
nearly 200 TB of archival data, with the capacity to grow to 750 TB.
According to Electrofilm's Jason Williamson, the amount of data in his environment makes storing it all on disk impractical. "The cost of tape media is about 30 cents per GB, while with a SAN, the total cost can add up to tens of dollars a gigabyte," he said.

Sun's SAM-FS software helps Jason improve data access time on tape by keeping track of the data on each cartridge and automatically retrieving it from the tape library when it's needed. The combined solution works perfect for Electrofilm!
