Choosing not to back-up and store copies of your tapes offsite could mean that any emergency to your site may incur a loss of valuable data. This is due to the fact that many offices do not store their data to the same high standard of protection and security that we ensure at Stor-a-file.
Our extra-large fire rated vaults are specifically designed for media storage ensuring that your tapes and data are kept much safer for longer than they would be in the majority of office storage situations. The vaults are kept in a clean, dry and secure storage environment. The vaults are also monitored by security and fire protection systems. This is in place alongside the precautions undertaken by our highly trained staff in order to ensure that your data is handled in the best possible manner.
Stor-a-File offer a daily, weekly and monthly tape rotation service to ensure that your stored data is regularly kept up to date. An ad-hoc request service is of course also available and we can offer same day express and emergency retrievals for DR exercises and real emergencies to almost anywhere in the country.
Having your back-up tapes to you quickly during an emergency is crucial and essentially ensures that your business doesn’t grind to a halt when disaster occurs. The knowledge that this is possible also allows you to have a little more peace of mind knowing that all of the important data that you are required to keep is in safe hands. Statistics have proven that following a disaster a 15 day complete loss of company data is likely render a business irrecoverable. Overall, storing back-up tapes offsite is the best way to ensure the protection of your valuable data.
