A Storage and Backup-as-a-Service solution helps you define your business requirements and compose the most suitable combination of tape, disk and flash technologies.
The classic tape technology is still the most cost-efficient way to save an ever-increasing data volume – with a minimum risk of data loss.
So, while tape technology might be old, it is by no means dead. In some cases, it may even the smartest choice:
- Long-term data archiving
Most companies have data compliance regulations, meaning that their data must be carefully archived for say 5 or 10 years. Tape technology offers storage with a minimum risk of data loss and minimum resource consumption.
- Offline copies
Sometimes an organization’s data policies stipulate that the backup data must be stored off premises and offline – and tape storage does both par excellence.
- Proof of data integrity
Tape technology can help your company prove that your backup data has not been altered – which is a regulatory compliance requirement in some industries.
Finally, as organizations regularly store petabytes and even exabytes of data, tape is indisputably the least costly storage media on the planet.
