MEDIA STORAGE & ROTATION
Our professional data protection services make it easy to maintain off-site data backups of your mission critical data allowing you to focus on your core business.
In an era when cloud backup has become the new standard for data storage, it is important to remember the vital role that tape backup can play in both your long-term archival and disaster recovery scenarios. DataSafe solicited feedback from our clients to learn more about their data backup and recovery needs to create strategies to help them meet those needs. Through our research, we determined that companies that abandoned their tape libraries and transitioned solely to cloud backup solutions were not only increasing their total cost of ownership, but they were also increasing their risk of data loss. In the event of catastrophic data loss, how will you operate your business without your mission-critical data? Some well-publicized data losses have proven that even modest amounts of data can take days to recover from a cloud backup system. Keeping your mission-critical data backed up to tape and protected offsite in our professional storage facility will allow you to regain access to that information within hours instead of days.
We understand that many companies will want to incorporate cloud backup into their disaster recovery plan and we strongly encourage that. In fact, we have been promoting hybrid cloud and media storage solutions to our clients for many years. While cloud backup systems are great for backing up and recovering small amounts of data from multiple sources, the risk of lost data from human error is still a real risk. Worse yet, the risk of ransomware is becoming greater each year. If you incorporate a secondary, physical backup system backup tapes or hard drives, you will reduce your risks significantly. DataSafe’s media vaults are custom-built for proper, secure, and long-term maintenance of electronic media.
