The building and construction industry has very long retention periods for data and large volumes of data to retain.

There is a constant need to review data from projects for both ongoing maintenance or for use on new building projects, but the current method of offsite tape storage makes this difficult and costly. Tape Ark’s solution provides the best of both worlds in that it is both cost-effective and provides vastly improved access to critical data.

  • Restore archive tapes
  • Reformat legacy tape backups for ingest into newly deployed backup systems

  • Data segregation for joint venture or divestitures of assets

The Maverick Mindset
Knowledge is power – but only if the knowledge is accessible. To move forward we must look back, understand the data we have and start thinking about how to utilize it – this is a big data frame of mind.
