      The lower cost per TB makes up for the initial cost of the drive in just a few tapes

        Oh boy I want to get this data off this tape of hundreds.
        *loads up and waits hours*
        Aside from backup of hoards, tapes are insufferable and out of the price range compared to hdds.

    Oh look, it's this thread again.
    For the record, poorfa/g/s aren't "data hoarders" in the classic sense of the term: they want their 8K 12bpc anime uncompressed BD rips "hot" - they can't handle the concept of having to actually reach for a tape and access data, because that would require them leaving their chair that they're welded to with sweat, and often not a small amount of urine.

      what would you even hoard to need this system? all the media i've ever consumed in my life would probably fit in 32TB, but i don't watch a whole lot of tv/movies; much more than that and i assume you need a legitimate business reason to store the data.

        literally nothing at all important that's worth the cost and infrastructure of tape archival for the for the layman

    I have two lto6 drives that I got for around $300 ea and 250tb of tape at about $12/cartridge. pretty cool. I even wrote a backup script to help keep track of where my files are using an sqlite database.

    BTW what’s the latest and greatest in tape storage? Is LTO still the king?

      Only by default. IBM are still soldiering on with some absolutely-top-end-of-enterprise-because-we-got-you-with-vendor-lock-in-frick-yeah tape format to my knowledge, but any format that IQfy's ever heard of is dead on the side of the road in LTO's rear view.

    The killer for LTO is the drive price. It’s worth it only if you can get a great deal on a used drive it seems.

      You can get a good LTO-5 drive for 100 bux and it can r/w LTO 5 and 4
      Both LTO 4 and 5 tapes are far cheaper than HDDs

      Data hoarders aren't getting people together at their homes
      In the unlikely event that happens they would have their movies in their hot storage and not in fricking tapes mongoloid

    I can sort of see the appeal of having a cheap option to store 4K UltraHD movies and TV shows and games which you go back to periodically. A full UltraHD rip can be like 80GB and entire seasons of TV shows a lot more than that. But it’s not worth it to dedicate hot storage for.

    I can get a 10TB enterprise drive for $70 from the chinks.
