USC Shoah Foundation Institute Selects Oracle’s Tape Drives

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

The USC Shoah Foundation Institute has selected Oracle’s StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives to support its ongoing project to catalogue and preserve visual testimonies from Holocaust survivors and witnesses, says Oracle. Now more than 80 percent complete, the Institute’s Holocaust preservation project began in 2008 with Oracle’s StorageTek SL8500 Modular Library System and StorageTek T10000B Tape Drives as the cornerstone of its architecture. The Oracle solution, which also includes Oracle’s Sun x86 servers with Oracle Solaris and Oracle disk arrays, digitizes approximately 80 TB of data per month and is on track to finish digitization in 2013.

The USC Shoah Foundation Institute, established by filmmaker and USC trustee Steven Spielberg, is dedicated to overcoming prejudice, intolerance, and bigotry, and the suffering they cause, through the educational use of more than 100,000 hours of visual testimonies.
