Initially created for retail, the cloud was engineered to remove complexity and increase efficiency and value.

Every day, retailers are capturing and analyzing a trove of data that spans across their operations. With the right tools and mindset, this growing volume of data can tell a story, inform a decision, and help shape the future.

Retailers are switching from tape storage to the cloud, firstly, to continue their growth without the pains related to managing legacy archives and backups. Additionally, it allows them to gain fast and easy access to historical data to understand insights and trends related to their business.

All predictive analytics’ systems require historical data on which to base its recommendations. Given tape is the number one backup media format and has been for many years, it was an obvious repository for long-standing historical transaction data, until now.

Today, it is no longer a question of ‘should we move’ our data to the cloud, but ‘when?’

Tape Ark’s tape media and data format expertise can help retailers rapidly migrate from any backup tape format into an accessible location for easy ingest into your production environment without disrupting day to day workflows.

No job is too big or too small for Tape Ark. We are committed to doing data justice through our suite of solutions that will deliver value today, tomorrow, and beyond.
