Storage
lock-in

Backup and archives are limited to virtual and physical tape systems that are 10x more expensive than distributed storage.

null

Tape management overhead

Tape management processes, such as recycling and scratch reclamation, run on CPs and increase MSU consumption.

null

Legacy
software

Backup and tape management software runs on CPs, lacks reporting and monitoring capabilities and requires a certain level of expertise to maintain.

null

Recovery
risks

Virtual tape backups are exposed to cyber attacks and are subject to slow recovery times and infrequent backups.
