Sony’s New 185 TB Tape Cartridges

Sony has just announced that it has developed a new technology that permits 185TB tape cartridges – that’s more than 5 times the current highest density.

So why does this matter? Because as volumes of data continue to grow, tape is still widely used for data backup. It’s thousands of times faster than cloud backup solutions, highly reliable, and easy to control and secure.

Look for the new technology to be available commercially later this fall.
