Tape transport

Tape transport - in safe hands

Besides secure offsite storage of your data, tape transport is also an extremely important aspect of the logistics process. Our staff is therefore intensively screened, and you can always track your data during transport by means of our TapeTracer app.

Backupned’s own employees organize and carry out the transport. These employees are all intensively screened before they start working for us. Needless to say, the quality and reliability of your tape storage is guaranteed throughout the entire process. Because your backup and your data are in two physically separate locations, this is also known as air gapped backup.

Tape transport

Our data transport follows a strict logistics process. This logistics process is carried out by experienced drivers who are permanent employees of Backupned and have been intensively screened (as have all employees at Backupned). The data is transported discretely and anonymously in unmarked vehicles. All our vehicles are conditioned and provided with a vehicle tracking system. This system enables us to see exactly where our vehicles are any time.

You can also track your data as it is transported, by means of our TapeTracer app. Your tape backup is given a barcode which enables you to permanently keep an eye on your LTO 9 media tapes.

Company data is very important and of inestimable value. It is the cornerstone of your company and that is how we always treat it, including when we transport your data.

We can assure you that your data is secure with us and that the process is streamlined. This is done by combining security and continuity with short lines of communication and the perfect availability of our staff 24/7. If necessary, you can have all the data you need at your disposal again in no time at all, on account of our fast and punctual LTO tape transport. Our specialists will be happy to help you from start to finish: from purchase to data storage itself.

Veelgestelde vragen

How is transport kept secure?
We work on the basis of a low-profile policy and therefore use unmarked vehicles for this. All our vehicles are air-conditioned and provided with an alarm system with a high security rating. They are also provided with a black box with a GPS vehicle tracking system so that we can see the exact location of the vehicle at any time. The history of this data is kept for a long time.
Do you ever have incidents which could put my back-up tapes at risk?
All our drivers are permanently employed with long-term contracts for an indefinite period. We closely monitor the state of our fleet of vehicles and the quality of maintenance. All vehicles are replaced every two years. Our drivers’ driving behaviour is consistent and extremely careful. The number of incidents in relation to the number of kilometres driven each year is virtually zero.
Can you be compared to a courier service?
Certainly not, even though it might seem so. We perform daily and weekly recurring transports with a strong sense of their high insurance rating. This is further reinforced by our day-to-day contact with our clients.
How frequently can you collect tapes from us?
It can be done regularly: daily, weekly, monthly and annually at times between 8.30 and 17.30. It is also possible to make use of an on-demand schedule in which the exchange is arranged entirely according to the client’s wishes and needs. Arrangements for exchanges at the weekend or on nationally recognised public holidays must be made in advance.
Do you also collect back-up tapes from other countries?
Yes, we do. National or continental borders form no obstacles to us. It is however conditional on our being completely involved in the transport as the regulatory authority and “processor”.
