The Worlds Data Archived on Tape Cartridge?

IBM and Fujifilm have unveiled the 35 Terabyte tape cartridge, and though people with home PC’s will never likely backup any of their data to tape, it is more likely that the worlds information in museums, libraries and government files will be stored on tape backup for decades to come. Just when you thought that tape medium, one of the oldest medium to store data was antiquated, they keep coming up with new innovative ways to extend it use.

Here is YouTube video from IBM talking about the new Tape cartridge:

Imagine this: A wall to wall room of reels could store every collective piece of data in the entire world, what better way to preserve history than keeping a couple of thousand backup tapes of our entire civilization?
