Additional archiving requirements

Worldwide legal requirments ensure that more and more data must now be retained for longer periods. As example pharmaceutical companies in the US are obliged to archive their data for a period of up to 100 years, banks and insurance companies have legal archiving obligations of 15 to 30 years.

The volumes of digital data are doubling worldwide every two years. This forecast takes into consideration the possible data reduction that can be achieved through software based de-duplication. According to experts the growth rate would be round about 70 percent without de-duplication. They also expect that the amount of new created and replicated data will have exceeded 1.8 zettabyte in 2011 – that corresponds 1.8 trillion gigabyte. Looking back to a time frame of 5 years the data volumes has grown ninefold.

For the long-term data storage tape media are still significant. New market trends such as cloud computing are no alternatives. Instead they are leading to a deacreasing of market shares in the entry segment of tape markets and are driving the growth for mid-sized to enterprise tape-based solutions.

Beside its low price tape technology also has the advantage of a great reliability – especially in archiving of large data volumes. Its importance for long-term storage today also can be seen in the market situation. Even if mid-sized tape libraries only have a share of 2 percent in the total market volume, 17 percent of the total market value is accounted to this product segment.

Focusing the area autoloader as well as compact and small tape libraries we will also open up markets of mid-sized data storage solutios with new products. They will be based upon small tape libraries that can be scaled to mid-size solutions. In this regard, we are anticipating first sales in 2013.

The main application purpose of our tape libraries is the long-term archiving of data, the so called tier-3 data. Those make up 65 percent of total data volumes. Because the amount of data to be stored for the long-term significantly increases experts also expect a growth rate of round about 55 to 60 percent for Tier-3 data.
