Storage Manufacturers Form Tape Technology Council

Nine data-storage manufacturers have formed a new organization called the Tape Technology Council. The council's mission is to support tape storage as a key option for data backup. As the price of storage has decreased over the years, companies have begun to evaluate using devices other than tape for backup. The council will raise awareness about tape technology to help data-storage manufacturers combat the developing competition.

The Tape Technology Council will provide education, training, and information about tape storage technologies to users, resellers, and industry analysts; explain how tape technologies compare with other options; and educate end users about the tape storage technology market. Founding members are the EMTEC Group, Fujifilm, IBM, Imation, Maxell Corporation of America (MCA), Quantum, Seagate Removable Storage Solutions (RSS), Sony, and StorageTek.
