There are many different components data backup administrators must consider while working with tape storage in their data backup environment. And one of the most important decisions that a data backup administrator must make is which tape rotation scheme to use. The tape rotation scheme affects the number of tapes that an organization uses, and how long data is retained. This article examines several common tape rotation schemes.

Keep in mind that most of the tape rotation schemes discussed here are geared primarily toward full data backups. They can, however, be adapted to incremental and differential backups.
