Re: [AV Media Matters] I am talking Server based systems here


Ultimately all the server-based systems I seem to find out about end up
with archives on tape--we hope that will change to optical media, but I
just don't see for a while (except in special cases) the advantages to
keeping everything on constantly-spinning disks. Using good datacenter
management and robotics to handle the tapes and archive managers to check
them periodically (automagically) all makes sense, but I don't see the
master copies of the worlds' recorded legacy constantly living on spinning
