Magnetni medij za smeštanje podataka (dugačka, uska, braonkasta stvar) u suštini od istog materijala od kog su napravljene audio i video kasete. Prednost ovog medija je njegova niska cena i veliki kapacitet (sposobnost da primi veliku količinu podataka). njegova mana je to što nudi samo linearni, ili sekvencijalni pristup, što znači da ponekad treba da premotate celu traku da biste našli ono što tražite. Za razliku od toga, diskovi pružaju mogućnost direktnog pristupa tako da do bilo koje tačke možete da stignete za delić sekunde, bez potrebe da bilo šta premotavate. Trake se najčešće koriste za izradu rezervnih kopija podataka.

2. A storage medium consisting of a thin strip of paper used to store information in the form of sequences of punched holes, chemical impregnation, or magnetic ink imprinting.
