Our capabilities

We understand that modern IT departments are busy. When an urgent archive restore request comes in, the pressure can start mounting to turn it around quickly, amongst everything else! We can help you alleviate common tape restoration headaches and meet even the strictest of deadlines.

Targeted restores

Looking for a specific item? Our granular search capabilities enable you to restore exactly the data you need to the format of your choice.

Lightning speed

No matter how short the timeframe, we can help you. We can work 24/7/365 to restore your data so you can meet even the tightest of deadlines.

Any media type

We can recover from any type of storage media, regardless of the backup system that was originally used to store the data.

How it works

We use a project-based approach tailored to your exact requirements, but a usual tape restoration project can include:

  • Recovery of inaccessible data
  • Replication and de-duplication
  • Catalogue and indexing report for future data mapping
  • Development of custom software and tools
  • Conversion of your legacy media in a secure, efficient and cost-effective manner
  • Accurate bit-for-bit copy of the source data, supplied back to you in the required format

All of these steps are flexible and can be adjusted to suit your needs, particularly when the delivery deadlines for data restores are very tight.

Any tape format

From reel-to-reel to the latest LTO tapes, we can cater for any type of magnetic storage, no matter how new or old the technology is. Even if your media is damaged, our engineers can help using proprietary tape recovery techniques.
