I read something in a Oracle Archiving book, about longevity of Tape Versus Disk, i quote:
"Longevity. No matter how you store your data, eventually it has to be moved either due to obsolescence or deterioration of the storage media. It is not uncommon for archive data to remain on tape for up to a decade (though the tape itself can last up to 30 years) — disk archives typically need to be replaced every three to five years."
Book: Archiving for dummies: Oracle special edition Page:18
Can a guru help me understand why disk life is less (as stated in the same source that Disks have 10 yrs of shelf life, comparing to the 30 yrs of Tape life)?
I would be thankful of the reading suggestion to understand this topic better. Thank you in advance.
