Types of migration

If you’re looking to migrate your archive data to another storage medium, we can assist with the following services:

Tape to tape

We can help you migrate from one tape generation to another or consolidate multiple types of tape into one common format.

Alternative storage

Need to move your tape data to disk or another format of choice? We can migrate your data to any form of storage.

New backup system

If you are migrating to a new backup system we can assist in aligning all of your archive tape data so that it is compatible with your new infrastructure.

As part of a tape archive migration, we can convert and consolidate your archives onto one, unified platform of choice. Each project is tailored to your needs, but here’s just some of the services we can provide:

  • Recovery of any inaccessible data
  • Replication and de-duplication
  • Catalogue and indexing report for future data mapping
  • Development of custom software and tools for the retrieval of archived data
  • 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
