I know precisely 0 people with tape archives...
I knew 1 back in the 90s..
It's not really what people do, at all.
Again, you seem to be falling into that 'advanced user, so everything is simple' trap. There's no way I'd ever even consider buying a tape backup system, I wouldn't even know where to start with research. You're not going to just walk into a high street store and buy a tape backup solution.
