State of tape
George, thanks for the reality check on tape. I can understand why the market remains healthy, especially for mid-sized and smaller businesses. But do you think that with the rate that data is growing tape will continue to be a practical solution? I would think that even for smaller companies, physical space constraints will start to be an issue.

Tape is Cool in 2014!
George, thanks for this... there are many opportunities to leverage tape in the new world of looking for low cost, long term storage... I too have been writing about it... 2014, The Year of the Undead, the Year of Tape

Happy New Year sir, hope you have a great year!
