Abstract: 

In the recent AI/IoT era, data has grown exponentially and scalable cloud and object storage has been widely adopted in many industries & applications. Fujifilm, as a leading company in the tape storage industry, has developed an object-based tape system supported with a new format to write and read native objects directly to/from tape, to enable seamless and effective use of tape storage in the cloud and object storage environments. The new format will also support sustained write/read throughput for large data sets. The object-based tape system will evolve tape storage by improving management of object data on tape, and enhance the optimization of the overall storage infrastructure. Details of the concept will be explained in our presentation.
