Dell offers higher-end tape-storage goods

Dell Computer has begun selling higher-end tape-backup systems that use a newer format called Linear Tape-Open, expanding the Round Rock, Texas, company's push into the data-storage market. The company is selling the PowerVault 136T with capacity of as much as 14.4 terabytes of storage in 72 cartridges and a starting price of $17,000. The PowerVault also can be configured with a Fibre Channel networking router to connect the device to special-purpose storage networks. The 128T, which Dell plans to release later this year with a starting price of $10,000, can hold up to 4TB in 20 cartridges.
