The tape may be the common memory of people born in the 1980s and pre-95 groups.
Although hard disk, flash memory, optical disk and other storage media have replaced its position on a large scale, in fact, tape has not died out.
According to foreign media reports, quantom is selling M8 format lto-7 tapes with a capacity of up to 9TB for $57.77 (about 403 yuan).
After simple conversion, the unit price of 1TB is only 44.77 yuan, which may be the storage product with the highest capacity price ratio at present.
In terms of transmission speed, lto-7 tape can reach 300mbps (37.5mb / s). The official promises at least 30 years of service life and lifelong warranty.
In addition, lto-7 tape has a compression ratio of 2.5:1, that is, it can actually store 22.5tb of data.
