Will LTO7 from HPE be able to take the top slot in storage?

HP Enterprise (HPE) has acquired the second position in backup solution within a short span. With the launch of LTO7, it aspires to achieve the number one position thus surpassing EMC. The top slot is currently held by EMC. When HP entered the storage solutions market, it started from the bottom of the ladder with so many players above it. Within a short span, it has acquired the second slot. The credit goes to its innovative solutions and a strict roadmap. The roadmap for LTO 8, LTO 9 and LTO 10 is clearly defined and the teams are working on it accordingly. HPE LTO 7 has a capacity of 15 TB (Terabytes). This is the compressed data capacity. The uncompressed or raw data capacity is 6.5 TB. This is a tremendous achievement by HPE by launching an unbeatable and versatile fantastico solution in backup and storage. HPE StoreEver is the latest entrant in the race. A single cartridge of LTO 7 can store up to 15 TB of compressed data. This is, in reality, a dream come true for storage hungry corporate. The solution is obviously a boon for media, entertainment and streaming businesses.
