Disk-Based Data to Cloud Migration

Tape Ark has established significant connectivity at its mass ingest facilities and can now import data from a range of technology including disks, servers, transportable storage devices, and tapes. If your company needs to import large volumes of data (whether it’s terabytes or petabytes) to the cloud but lacks connectivity speeds to do it efficiently, then Tape Ark’s Disk-Based Migration Service can help.

Scalable Volumes

Tape Ark can import data in almost any volume from your storage devices to help speed up your import, without the need for you to buy or lease your own telecommunication lines, and allows for your cloud migrations to move faster than ever. Tape Ark has experience in important datasets that have been measured in the 10’s of petabytes and has access to bandwidth that can be scaled to meet most deadlines.

All of the major cloud platforms offer data transfer services such as the Azure Data Box and Amazon Snowball. However, while these transfer systems are great for smaller volumes of data, they can be complex and time-consuming to use when datasets need to be copied to multiple numbers of devices or delivered into different geographic regions. The Tape Ark ingest service allows for large data transfers directly from your device. Just ship your hardware to our mass data ingest facility, and our team of specialists will import the data directly from your device or server to your cloud account.

State-of-the-Art Data Security

Tape Ark securely imports your data using state-of-the-art data security technology including encryption at rest and transfer to your preferred cloud platform. Tape Ark leverages many of the same extensive security protocols available from our major cloud partners.

Fast, Cost-Effective, and Efficient

Tape Ark’s data ingest service is done on a cost-per terabyte basis and is simple to budget for when arranging your cloud migration. The service allows you to expedite your cloud ingest workflow, reduce the need to purchase or lease your own telecommunication lines, and as most clouds ingest platforms have free data ingress, the solution can get you started in the cloud fast and in a cost-effective way.
