I agree, 50Tb is a ton of data.
I know nothing about the old style data servers, but you might look into Network Attached Storage options. I have a Synology NAS and absolutely love it. 50TB is going to be spendy for the drives; I don't know how much an equivalent sized server costs.
I sure wouldn't want to deal with technology that is already obsolete like a tape deck server, especially when planning to transfer 50Tb of data. Those tapes are going to go bad sooner than later, and then you'll have to copy all that data again.
