Tape Out Service
Cost Effective Long Term Data Retention
Tape backup is still relevant and should still be considered a valuable option when looking at backup options.
Data is fast becoming (if it’s not already) the most valuable asset any organisation possesses and continues to grow at an exponential rate. However, storing data can become very expensive depending on how long you need to retain it. Using tape backup for long term data retention is still the most cost effective method, especially with larger data volumes.
