Tape Migration: Virtualization

Tape Ark can virtualize your entire physical tape collection, and preserve your backups to a secure, low-cost Virtual Tape Library (VTL) cloud. A VTL offers the simplest replacement for offsite tape storage and is flexible, easy to manage, and reliable offering lower latency, and enhanced performance. By shifting to cloud-based backup tape storage through a VTL, you are also able to remove expensive and no longer necessary hardware and software from your infrastructure.

Scalable virtualization

Tape Ark is recognized for its scalability and ability to ingest tapes en masse to the cloud. As a future-focused organization, we enable you to reduce the cost and risk of managing large physical tape collections housed in offsite storage facilities and bring yesterday’s backups into the cloud for streamlined management.

State of the art data security

We securely convert your physical tapes to virtual tapes 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 cloud partners.

No upfront fees

Ideal for organizations looking to avoid large capital outlays, we offer tailored plans suitable to your business needs. Pay by how much data you have, not how many tapes you store, and receive all the benefits of a cloud based VTL.

A cost-effective solution

Tape Ark connects your existing backup application to the virtual tapes, which means no training or process change is required. With no more tape deterioration, faulty hardware, tape refreshes, offsite storage costs, or maintenance fees for legacy hardware, there are a number of direct cost savings for your organization.
