The Clipper Group has just discovered that tape is cheaper than disk.  Who knew?

Key findings (from unimpressive Computerworld spam email):

• Cost ratio for a 1TB stored long term on SATA disk vs. LTO-4 tape is 23:1
• Energy cost for 1TB SATA vs. LTO-4 is 290:1

You have to go through a lot of registration foo to download the report.  If you really want to, it’s here.  Email me a copy when you do.  I am too lazy.
