"When it comes to tape vs. disk, we see significant reduction–up to 1,500 times less energy consumption with tape than a comparable storage array comprising disk. So you can get hundreds of petabytes of storage on a couple of raised floor tiles, minimal heating ventilation and air conditioning requirements, consuming less than eight light bulbs worth of electricity. That's green. That's making a meaningful dent in the energy consumption."
