DATASTOR Shield™ EPS – Tape Library Integration
With all the hype of cloud storage, why would anybody want to use that “old” tape technology? Well, quite simply, if you have already invested in this technology, you should make the best use of it. And with our solution, there are some very compelling reasons to consider it as an alternative to cloud storage.
For backup storage requirements greater than 10 TB, tape is generally the most cost-effective solution for getting data offsite. Total life-cycle cost, it’s cheap. Toss in fully integrated deduplication and we make your tape solutions even more affordable. Combined with our software we can turn a 1 TB tape cartridge into a massive 20 TB of backup data (no kidding). You’ll spend 1/20th the cost for pickup and delivery services because you simply don’t need to manage as many tapes.
Datastor tape vaulting technology works identical to the vaulting process used for cloud storage, which means you can make a seamless transition from tape to cloud storage when the time is right for you.
Generally, the total cost of ownership of tape storage is less for backup storage requirements of 10 TB or more. If your backup storage requirements are less than 10 TB and you have adequate Internet connectivity, cloud storage may be an easy-to-deploy alternative to consider. We can help you sort out the options and decide which is best for you.
