Summary
  • Robert Wight, Maynard Electronics Inc Director of Marketing and Sales, discusses the tape backup market. Backup systems are safety measures to ensure that data will not be lost in case of hardware failure. Archives, system reorganization and faster access are other uses for backup tapes. Typical users will have 55Mbyte hard disks by 1990; 80286 and 80386 systems will outnumber 8086 and 8088 systems by five to one. Safeguards become more necessary as systems grow. Maynard portable tape backup systems outsell internal drives two to one. File-by-file backups give an opportunity to purge hard disks.
