This gets me wondering. Why can't HDD makers come up with some sort of standardized cartridge format for their drives, so I can completely get rid of tapes altogether, and use libraries of hard disks.
I know Imation has something like this called the Odyssey, but their capacity only goes up to 250 gigs. Dell has OEMed this, pitching it as a good removable solution for SMBs. Now, if we can just get a standard like this, but easily indexable and usable in the large size autochangers, this would be great.
