About Tape Drives

Tape drives, also called streamers, - specialized storage devices based on the principle of magnetic recording to tape. Currently, many professional users find this type of equipment is obsolete and use more modern internal and external hard drives and network storage for speed work with the data. Yet, tape drives have not lost their relevance when creating backup systems. Backup systems ensure data integrity under emergency situations (errors, interruptions in the operation of the system, emergency stop, etc.). The flow of information, even a small home network is growing, not to mention the corporate environment, where the amount of information just immense. For successful data backup, select the device with a large volume and download drivers for tape drives.

In addition to large capacity, tape drives are energy efficient, reliable and stable performance, as well as high-density, which is achieved due to the large surface of the magnetic layer. Their main drawback - the lack of direct access to information as to read a single file, you must first rewind the tape to the right place. This significantly slows processing.

All tape drives are divided into double reel and single reel. Both types of devices partially repeated principle of its outdated video and audio cassettes. Double reel storage is plastic shell, inside of which the serving (unwound tape) and receiving (Winding tape) reel. Manipulate the booking process help drivers tape. In Single reel models receiving cartridge is missing; instead a special mechanism pulls the tape streamer for the hook, runs on the tape deck and attaches the receiver coil.
