Magnetic tape is one of the easiest ways to back up individual workstations or small networks due to their high volume capacity for very affordable costs. A backup tape is also easier to store in off site facilities for enhanced security and protection against theft and natural disasters.
Smaller businesses may choose to store their tapes in a safe deposit box at a local bank, or even a fireproof vault in their own homes, however a safer solution for companies dealing with confidential information is to use off site backup services.
Storing one full set of data on site enables a company to recovery data immediately. Off site backup tape storage allows companies to retrieve lost data if anything happens to your on site computer systems.
Off Site Tape Storage Vaulting Defined
Off site tape storage vaulting is one of the best ways to protect your backup tapes from being compromised. Tape storage vaults are climate-controlled locations with very strict tolerances for temperature and humidity to prolong the life of your backup tapes.
Record Nations brings your business secure storage locations with fire protection and physical security to make sure that your information isn’t compromised by fires or corporate spies.
