the thing is for the hude data best option is san storages which can keep snapshots, which can recover very fast...
here in tape the backup speed depends up on verious things like link speed, server processing, memory, application process... etc.

the writing speed ..but when to recover the huge data it may take days to recover..

please check the following link for technical description...
