    One tape should be more than enough for anyone I think. Mind you, you'll only be able to afford the one!

    You've just made the fatal mistake of 'more than enough'... Give it a few years, and the world will consider them small.

    They have a point though! LTO-6 is basically the best on the market at the moment, and it can only handle about 6TB compressed. So bascially, in a normal useage scenario, a 4TB disk would just about fit on that tape.

    Imagine you're someone like Flickr - imagine how many tapes you need to do a backup! lol
