IBM Helps AlphaTV Tame Big Data

IBM has announced that AlphaTV, a leading television network in Greece, has overhauled its storage infrastructure with IBM high performance, high capacity tape solutions for greater efficiencies, faster access to video and the ability to store more video in dramatically less space. The project unfolds as IBM celebrates the 60th anniversary of the company's magnetic tape innovation — a technology that helped the fledgling electronic calculating industry move from paper punch cards to electronic storage for the first time and usher in the modern age of computing.
