  • Prevent accidental destruction of archive data
  • Avoid compliance or litigation issues
  • Decrease the time taken to search and restore data
  • Reduce costs associated with retaining legacy tape data

Tape audit process and consultation

All tape audits can be tailored to your needs, but our basic process includes:

Archive review

We search for tapes that might be unsupported by your current IT infrastructure or that have been catalogued incorrectly.

Accessibility check

Understand what storage technology you have in-house and verify that your team have the skills and time required to access legacy data.

Data retention analysis

We can identify any end-of-life data within your tape library and assist with destroying it effectively and in a timely manner.

Media quality evaluation

We can help you test the health of your tape archives to avoid discovering damaged media during a time-critical restoration request.
