The Emergence of a New Architecture for Long-term Data Retention

Dear Partner,

A new research report from Wikibon explains how the combination of flash and tape makes for a superior solution for long-term data archives versus using dedupe appliances.

The combination of these two technologies, that have been in the market, one for a few years and the other for decades, introduces a new concept. The concept is “Flape”, a concept first coined by Wikibon in October of 2012.

Flape is a combination of Flash (SSD) technology and tape…this combination of technologies when used for long-term archiving can save IT departments as much as 300% of their overall IT budget over the course of 10 years.
