Careful of the dates!  One of those articles is nearly four years old; the other is 10!

You can probably get most of what you need from the last link dbrunton gives.

"Magnetic tape, which is the greenest storage technology available today, is alive and will continue to be a cost-effective alternative to other storage technologies for at least another decade.

The low one-penny-per-gigabyte price of IBM and Fujifilm's latest tape formulation will likely keep magnetic tape cost-effective until denser optical disks are developed. Today's densest optical disks are Blu-ray, which stores just 50GB. To store the equivalent of one 4-inch tape cartridge holding 35TB (35,000GB) would require 700 Blu-ray disks at about 30 cents per gigabyte.
