Has anybody else here seen Eircell;s ... now called vodaphone.... setup for
storing this data? Real funny, its quite literally half a data centre
dedicated to this wall to wall with shelves of tapes. They have full time
staff of what are referred to internally as "tape monkeys" who go around
pulling tapes into trolleys and loading them into the tape machines which
are the size of builders roll on roll off skips. In fact when I was there
they were replacing those machines with newer models that took up less floor
space .... you've guessed it, so that they could install more shelf space
for tapes. Apologies to any tape monkeys who happen to be subscribed here.
