A leaflet about our tape libraries, a cost-effective and high capacity data storage solution.


​​A peek inside one of our Oracle tape libraries - the robot moves up and down the aisle accessing data stored on the tapes stacked on the shelves.


​High-capacity automated tape libraries  (two Oracle and one Spectra TFinity) housed in STFC’s Scientific Computing Department provide data storage for a number of projects and facilities. With a low cost per gigabyte, these libraries are ideal for fields in which the volume of data continues to grow at a rapid pace, including particle physics data from the Large Hadron Collider and data from the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA).
