Overview: When one stores valuable data on tape, one expects it to be there when needed. The success or failure of storing and recalling data depends on the reliability of both the tape drive that writes the data and the medium, tape, on which its stored. This paper published by Sun Microsystems highlights the design elements of the Sun StorageTek T10000 tape drive, a high-duty-cycle enterprise-class tape drive. This drive makes use of several unique features and new technologies that allow for heavy data retrieval in a robotic environment with excellent data availability, reliability, and performance.
