IBM has released a new tape drive that encrypts data as it is written to the tape. Will this breath new life into the dying tape backup market? At a starting price of $35000 I know it won't keep me from migrating to disk based backups. It sounds like they may be on to something for those companies who have the budget and can justify the cost. I am curious to see how much the tapes cost, what kind of read/write speeds they have.
