Western Dig's MAMR is so phat, it'll store 100TB on a hard drive by 2032

Re: Why not SSD Drives?

Even home and small-business users need backup storage, and tape these days is strictly the realm of larger enterprises able to afford the upfront costs of both device and interconnects. Without a consumer/small-business answer to tape, rust drives will remain the go-to archival choice at the low end for the foreseeable future (note this includes RDX, which is at least within reach of smaller businesses in need of a more regimented backup system).
