Backup tapes accumulate quickly. Mergers, acquisitions and normal business continuity and disaster recovery procedures can create large volumes of tapes on a regular basis. Before you know it an organization has stockpiled anywhere from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of tapes.
These backup tapes typically sit in expensive offsite storage vaults, where they are protected from deterioration. The majority of the content on tape is of no use, however legal, compliance and regulatory policies require that a small subset of the content, typically less than 1 percent, be archived for long term retention and legal hold.
Index Engines has streamlined access to legacy data on backup tapes. Finding and extracting relevant content required by legal and compliance is now a cost-effective process. The process eliminates the need for the original environment, including the backup software, and automatically scans tapes, generating a searchable index of the content. Finding user mailboxes, or sensitive documents using keyword search is easy. Once the relevant files and email are found, they can then be extracted directly from tape.
A typical tape remediation project would utilize high speed cataloging and indexing of the tape cartridges. A backup tape library will automate processing and speed up processing of even the largest tape repository. Since only a small volume of tape content is typically relevant, extracting this data from tape is fast and efficient. In fact, most backup tape remediation projects can be achieved in less than 12 months, saving the ongoing tape storage costs and managing long term liability.
With Remediation of Legacy Backup Tapes you can:
Easily separate relevant tape content from the useless information with maximum efficiency,
Avoid time consuming and expensive system restoration to gather a small amount of data, and
Cut offsite storage expenses that continue to erode an already tight IT budget.
