Some Facts About Tape Cost of Ownership

An organisation can achieve total cost savings (considering storage, infrastructure, maintenance/support, egress, and adminstration) of approximately 86% ($2.358M versus $329K) over a ten-year period using HPE StoreEver for a 1 PB archive over the public cloud.
In the same analysis, the TCO for users of HPE StoreEver tape is 82% lower than those related to disk-based solutions ($329K for HPE versus $1.803M for all-disk).
Ten years from now, a company with 5 PB of data today may need to budget for $1.359 Million in storage and egress fees. Should the organisation opt to purchase HPE StoreEver and additional LTO-7 tape drives to accommodate for annual data growth, the cumulative storage costs amount to $145K over the ten-year period.
