Are you looking for a new tape automation solution for your company? Storage tape automation is one of the most cost effective methods of data backup for a business that has a need for proprietary information protection. As a data storage solution that keeps data completely separate from the "always on" Internet connections of most commercial business offices today, tape automation is highly valued for its discretion as well as its durability. Tape is one of the physically strongest mediums of any storage media on the market, which can help data from degrading while it is being stored.
HP, Overland Storage, Quantum, and Tandberg Data are some of the most well known companies that produce storage tape automation products. Although each of these companies have special features that are proprietary to its own technology, some of the basic features that are indicative of the quality of all of the products include a high data transfer rate, a sturdy enclosure type, and the capacity to compress data or store it naturally—depending on the needs and the resources of the company.
Medium and large businesses have a greater need than ever to protect their data. With the right drive type, form factor, and connector type in tape automation, a company can save a great deal of money by protecting against system failure and malicious hacking. Automation is also time effective because the entire process of data storage and transfer does not have to be overseen by a human in order to be effective. This frees up the resources of a company to focus on actual day-to-day business.
