Does EMC need tape.

Market making

So DD seems to have done a pretty good job of owning the disk based dedupe appliance market. But that really only goes out to 100s of TBytes (raw) primarily for recovery purposes?

Petabyte archives? Different use case & in this big data world, sure, only tape can handle that: pure economics, simple.

But how many shops have multi-petabyte requirements? Some yes, but not as many that can make use of disk based dedupe.
