AWS Storage Gateway now makes it easier and faster for you to search, view, and manage your virtual tapes stored in AWS using Tape Gateway. From the Tapes page in the Storage Gateway management console, you can now quickly search for tapes using common filters such as tape barcode and status. You simply select the desired filter from the drop-down menu and quickly narrow down your search to the relevant set of tapes, saving you time and management overhead. For example, to delete archived tapes exceeding your defined retention period, you can use the Archived filter, select the desired date range, and delete all tapes that match your specified filter in just a few clicks.
