For all businesses, information backups play a key role in ensuring that businesses can recover from catastrophes such as hurricanes, fires, floods or a hardware failure. If businesses don’t have critical data backed up, even a minor situation can turn into a disaster. Tape backups remain a key for backing up and archiving data.
Tape backups provide businesses with data storage that is:
- Portable and secure. You can easily transport tape backups to multiple off-site locations for security. A strong disaster recovery strategy includes off-site storage as a critical factor for successful recovery. Tape is a great way of isolating your data and protecting the files from data loss.
- Easily stored for long-term archiving. Even if files are inactive, you still have to keep them and tape backups provide a great solution for storing and protecting data for long periods of time.
- Reliable.When stored and transferred correctly, a tape backup allows companies more points in time to convert back to and provides a secondary recovery method if another approach fails.
By having a reliable data storage solution in place to store and backup vital information, the risk of losing valuable data is reduced.
