How do they compare the cost of both disk and tape storage ? Store the 90 days worth of backup data on a disk (disk cache) to help meet the performance objectives defined in service level agreements. We will then save the 13th weekly full backup as the archived quarterly backup and save it to a disk system and to a tape system – to compare the TCO costs of each long- term storage solution . The cost comparison, over five years focuses on storing these “archived quarterly backups” on the two alternatives, disk and tape .
