A data storage device that uses magnetic tape to read and write data is called a tape drive. For offline and archival data storage purposes, magnetic tape data storage comes out most-preferred among storage mediums. Tape media commonly possess favorable unit cost and high archival durability. According to some manufacturers, tape storage can last up to 30 years. However, LTO tapes are susceptible to storage conditions. Thus, you can count on the 30-year life-span if you deploy the drives in ideal storage conditions, including a constant temperature of approximately 70°F and 40% relative humidity.
A tape library in data storage is a collection of tape drives and magnetic tape cartridges. A tape library (in some cases) is home to hundreds or even thousands of tape drives and cartridges. In the library, there are multiple tapes for data reading and writing. Also, you'll find enclosures for mounting and unmounting cartridges, barcodes, and access ports for entering and removing tapes.

Advantages of Magnetic Tape Drive Media
Magnetic tape drive media comes with many more benefits than other storage mediums; here is a handful of them.
High Capacity and Flexibility
The recording density of magnetic tape remains on the rise, and there has been confirmation of next-generation technologies— a feature that has almost reached its limits in hard disks. By making the tape longer and thinner, you can increase the capacity of the tape drive.
A Perfect Long-term Storage Solution

With the magnetic tape media, the problems of hacking, theft, and blackouts are wholly erased as the tape stores its data offline.
