So, I've finally talked my boss into buying into tape backup. As we are getting spooled up, we start finding every reseller is out of stock of LTO-8 tapes. No one has talked about this.

So yeah, LTO-7 or nothing. How is everyone else dealing with this on the enterprise level? Cloud backup? Some other type of media? Or waiting out LTO-9?
