Tape Media Storage & Retrieval - How do we get started ?

Placing your computer system backup media into store and scheduling a daily/weekly/monthly delivery & collection to swap tapes around for re-use, is very simple to set up.

In order to establish how we can best help you, we will ask a few questions first ?

1. Do you execute a daily, weekly or monthly backup cycle ? Which of these tapes do you wish to store securely offsite ?

2. How many tapes are there ? Do you house your tapes in a tape carrier case or as individual tapes ? What types of tapes do you have - DLT, LTO, etc..

4. How often do you require access to the tapes - every day, every week, every month to be used in a rotating tape schedule or only when a tape backup needs to be restored ?

We can accomodate any of the above scenarios, delivery & collecting tapes on a daily, weekly and/or monthly basis or as required by you.

All tapes to be stored with us, will be collected by our logistics team. Each tape and it's carrier case will be assigned a unique barcode & barcode scanned into store, to ensure it can be located within minutes of any retrieval request from you. You will be assigned a user account and secure password to our online records management system 'Webtrack', whereby you will be able to securely view details of all media tapes held with us, and can be requested for return to you at the click of a button.

Tapes will be delivered to you on the schedule as agreed to meet your requirements or as you require - Our hours for media support are 24/7, 365 days a year - Same day, next day, emergency recall. Emergency retrieval outwith your scheduled delivery/collection is available by telephoning 07000 358358 any time.

Along with your quarterly or monthly invoice, you will have access to an up to date record showing details of all tapes in store with us, and a report of all movement charges which have ocurred over the previous quarter/month.

To ensure the security of your records, only authorised personnel are permitted entry into the secure store area, or permitted access to our computerised records system. Our computer system is fully fire-walled, virus protected and backed up onto our extensive tape backup system.

Our tape storage facility is temperature stable, between 16-19 degrees Celcius and 40-60% humidity, and fully protected by Redcare fire and intruder alarm systems, with 24 hour security monitoring.
