Tape to Cloud


Use Cloud Storage to complement your LTO Infrastructure

Moving tape to cloud for backup and archiving is achievable with the right backup software and cloud storage vendor. Linear Tape-Open (LTO) based storage has long been the economic favourite for data backup and archiving.  Much of the world’s back-up data resides in portable, remotely stored tape drives, readily accessible in case disaster strikes.

As data volumes increase, and retrieval requirements need to be more dynamic, you may need to add another layer of data protection to your back-up and archiving strategy.

Why not migrate from tape to Cloud Storage?

Data access is slow and the hardware may develop mechanical failure, which may impact on data retrieval timings.  This is where tape to cloud advantages become clear.  First, Cloud costs per gigabyte are cost-competitive with LTO, especially when considerations like space and power are taken into account.  Unlike tape, Cloud is hot storage, which means it’s readily accessible whenever needed.  Why would you store your tape in a salt mine, making it difficult and slow to retrieve, when you could store it online in the Cloud?
