Oracle’s StorageTek T10000D tape drive shatters existing capacity and performance speeds, dramatically reducing the number of cartridges, slots, and library modules required to archive and retrieve data. With up to 8.5 TB of native capacity per cartridge and native data rates of 252 MB/sec, the StorageTek T10000D tape drive stores and retrieves more than 3x the data per cartridge and offers 57 percent faster native throughput than LTO-6. With 3:1 compression, it can achieve data rates more than 19 percent faster than the IBM TS1140, while storing more than twice the data per cartridge. Deployed in the Oracle StorageTek SL8500 tape library system, the StorageTek T10000D enables customers to scale in excess of 68 exabytes of capacity under a single point of management.

Continuing to drive new innovation into tape storage, Oracle today announced the StorageTek T10000D tape drive, the industry’s fastest, highest capacity tape drive, providing a breakthrough opportunity for cloud service providers to monetize faster than any other storage media.
With 54 percent more capacity per cartridge over the previous generation, up to 8.5 TB native, the StorageTek T10000D tape drive can help customers reduce acquisition costs for data center backup by 35 percent.

The StorageTek T10000D tape drive stores and retrieves data at record speed, up to 252 MB/sec native, enabling customers to meet backup recovery time objectives and archive SLAs with fewer tape drives. The StorageTek T10000D can achieve data rates 57 percent faster than LTO-6.

It is also the first tape drive with support for both 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel and 10 Gb/s Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), ideal for next generation converged data centers.

The new capabilities broaden the appeal of tape storage in markets with large file assets, including media and entertainment, oil and gas, healthcare imaging, and cloud services. Cloud service providers can monetize tape faster than disk media due to its longevity, durability and lower cost. In media and entertainment, customers can store five hours of 4K digital content on a single tape cartridge and over 16 million hours of 4K content in a single Oracle StorageTek SL8500 tape library complex.

Additionally, with Oracle’s Linear Tape File System (LTFS), customers can drag-and-drop multiple LTO LTFS enabled volumes onto a single StorageTek T10000D cartridge for large data consolidation projects.

Oracle will host a Webcast on September 17 at 10 am. PT to discuss the new StorageTek T10000D tape drive and LTFS Library Edition software, also announced today, in more detail. Both new digital archiving solutions are featured this week at the IBC2013 conference in Amsterdam in the Oracle exhibit, Hall 9, Exhibit 9.D15.

StorageTek T10000D Extends Oracle’s Lead in Tape Reliability, Data Integrity and Ease-of-Use, Protects Customers’ Tape Investments
The StorageTek T10000D tape drive’s Data Integrity Validation (DIV) feature allows validation without requiring transfer of the data back to the application, enabling customers to schedule more frequent, less resource-intensive data integrity checks over the lifetime of their data.
Fully supported by StorageTek Tape Analytics health monitoring and reporting software, customers can further enhance long term digital data resiliency.

The StorageTek T10000D tape drive is backward read compatible with all three previous generation StorageTek T10000 tape drives.

The StorageTek T10000D uses the same media as its predecessor, enabling customers to increase capacity 55 percent without investing in new media.

“Oracle’s new StorageTek T10000D tape drive clearly demonstrates Oracle’s continued leadership and innovation in enterprise tape storage technology,” said James Cates, vice president, Hardware Development, Oracle. “With the fastest and highest capacity drive available, customers can accelerate massive consolidation of long-term archives, improve data center efficiency, and lower TCO. When you add LTFS LE capabilities and Oracle innovations in both data integrity and monitoring, Oracle is taking a commanding lead in storage for long-term data retention and archiving.”

“The European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) requires a cost-effective and scalable storage solution to archive its large repository of meteorological data - currently 50PB, expected to grow by 45 percent each year,” said Francis Dequenne, Principal Systems Analyst, Data Handling Systems, ECMWF. “The bulk of this data is saved on StorageTek T10000 media, and is retrieved by researchers across Europe and the world, resulting in over 15,000 tape mounts per day. The data is vital to the success of our organization, hence the reliability of the media and tape drives is paramount. We look forward to installing T10000D drives, which will help minimize our costs while allowing us to meet the extreme demands of our tape storage environment.”

“With today's announcement of the StorageTek T10000D tape drive, Oracle has extended its position as tape technology leader with another record breaking tape drive. With no one else to top, Oracle has broken its standing record for maximum native capacity for commercially-available tape of 5.5 TB, held by T10000C since early 2011, with its new 8.5 TB StorageTek T10000D drive,” said David Reine, Senior Analyst, The Clipper Group. “This capacity is achieved using the same media that T10000C users have in their data centers today, thereby protecting their media investment for years to come. With the industry's fastest native throughput at 252 MB/second, T10000D is well equipped to simplify existing backup and archive tape environments with fewer cartridges, drives, and libraries. T10000D offers this opportunity for massive consolidation at a total cost that will come as a surprise to most LTO users. According to Oracle's calculations, a 1 PB T10000D solution can cost about 20 percent less and can consume about 20 percent less floor space than with LTO-6 in Oracle's StorageTek SL3000 Library, thus demonstrating that Oracle can deliver enterprise-class tape technology at a lower total cost than LTO.”

“Front Porch Digital is leveraging the newly formed OEM relationship with Oracle to deliver high capacity and performance tape solutions for storing media content. We have successfully qualified the new StorageTek T10000D with our world class DIVArchive software and LYNX cloud based solutions,” said Andy Hurt, Vice President of Product Management, Front Porch Digital. “We believe this powerful combination will result in an enterprise-class offering that meets the big data requirements from our customers and will scale with both efficiency and reliability.”
