Tape storage uses digital recording to store data on magnetic tape. Tape drives can read and write information. It's one of the oldest ways to store digital data, but it's still used because it's cheap, safe, and flexible for long-term data that isn't used very often but is still important. Tape storage is cheap, long-lasting, and can hold much information.
Extensive Rise in Data Volumes
Europe's massive data expansion is fueling tape storage market growth. Tape storage can meet Europe's demand for safe, scalable data storage due to its high capacity, cost-effectiveness, and reliability. According to recent International Data Corporation (IDC) research, Europe's data creation will expand by 23.4% from 2020 to 2025, reaching 237.4 zettabytes. Digital technologies, IoT devices, and corporate and consumer data expansion drive this growth. All industries struggle to store, manage, and analyze this data explosion. Many organizations use tape storage as a cost-effective and reliable data storage and management solution to address these issues.
The upfront costs related to obtaining the appropriate hardware and software are one of the major factors causing the high investment needed for tape storage solutions. This can be a major obstacle for businesses, especially those with tight finances. For instance, a small European company might not have the money to purchase a tape library or backup system. According to a TechValidate survey, 37% of businesses in Europe are concerned about the difficulty of deploying and administering a tape storage system. In comparison, 47% mention cost as a deterrent to using tape storage solutions.
