Our data storage products provide highly scalable and reliable solutions to store and retrieve very large quantities of electronic data. Qualstar’s products are known throughout the world for their high quality, ease of use, and reliability—providing years of trouble-free service.

Selecting the Right Solution

Tape has long been used as a digital data storage medium, but it is the rapid expansion of Big Data in recent years that has really made its value proposition apparent. With ultradense storage capacities, ever-increasing read/write speeds, and data integrity for up to 30 years, tape is the 21st-century solution to the problem of storing more and more nearline and persistent data, that which is infrequently accessed or has been archived. It is also the low-cost solution to storing massive amounts of information, given the lower cost of tape cartridges over competing media and tape’s smaller power draw compared to hard drive solutions

Tale of the Tape:

  • Each cartridge can store multiple terabytes of data.
  • Tape maintains data integrity for up to 30 years.
  • Lower power consumption makes it a green alternative to hard drives.
  • Barcode tracking system keeps data organized.
  • Since data on tape is decoupled from its source, it is more secure from cyberattacks.
  • Increased data density has yielded faster write and read speeds.
  • Compared to solid state drives, hard disks, optical, and other storage alternatives, tape is still the most cost-effective media for data storage.
