Tape Storage

Tape is often a 'fire-and-forget-it' kind of technology for IT. But what about the long haul?

This article on Evaluating Tape Drive Performance should also be of great interest to those involved in long term data storage and archiving as well as a more general audience.

Blogs of Note: Pythian

Pythian, one of our favorite blogs here at the Infogram, has come out with its listing of Q1 Webinar Schedule Updates. Appropriately enough, they entitle it: Q1 Webinar Schedule Update.

Also of interest is this article on risk and the DBA. Sometimes risk aversion is risky business:

The DBA and the Trigger
