Fujifilm’s tape evangelist, Rich Gadomski, joins us for an interesting discussion on tape and LTO. We talk about the different subtrates that have been used over the years, and how that changed things. We then talk about LTO-9 and what that brings to market. We also talk about how tape has seen a bit of a resurgence in interest in the backup market due to the advent of ransomware. Always fun to talk to someone that can talk at this depth on such things.
