Recovery of legacy systems
Back-up tapes made with obsolete software which have been archived for a long time (long-term data archiving) can be problematic to recover. Make sure, therefore, that you always subscribe to restore on demand, and preferably at the offsite provider. If that has been done, Backupned can ensure that your data is delivered in the format you want.
Finally, the growing quantity of data makes it important that enough space can be reserved in the physical location where the tapes are stored. If fast, immediate availability is less important to you, data storage on tape is by far the cheapest and safest option. What’s more, tapes – depending on the physical location of the tape storage – can usually be returned within three hours. In practice, therefore, the availability of tape, about which some people have their doubts, proves to be better than expected. If data classification is not an issue in a company, it is wise to consider storing all data on tape for the time being.
