Business Challenge

You live under constant attack. Dealing with the consequences of hardware malfunctions, human errors, software corruption and man-made or natural disasters can kill your productivity. You’re under-staffed, under-resourced and, ultimately, under pressure to keep things up and running while helping your organization achieve new business objectives.

What if you could stop worrying about one big thing – your backup tapes?

By moving tapes offsite and into the care of a trusted third party with proven resources, technology and experience focused on protecting your data, you can reduce downtime and get back up and running... because your business depends on it.

Business Solution

Iron Mountain® Offsite Tape Vaulting provides you with a comprehensive solution for transporting, storing, managing and retrieving your backup media from a secure, offsite facility.

You’ll have the proven technology and expertise you need to ensure you can get back up and running should the unexpected happen. You’ll know you’re protected because you’ll have access to rigorous, industry-leading protocols for protecting media while in transit and at rest. And, because your media is managed following proven procedures and best practices, you’ll be confident in your ability to find what you need when you need it, any time an internal or external source requests data from a specific tape.

What You Gain

You’ll get a secure Offsite Tape Vaulting service to store your backup data, protect it under optimal environmental conditions and retrieve it when necessary. You’ll gain:

  • Confidence that you can quickly and effectively recover from any event, at any time, regardless of location
  • Complete protection for information in transit and at rest
  • A streamlined process for identifying, restoring and delivering the information contained on a specific tape

In our care, your data is stored in highly protected facilities that offer increased protection from high flood, earthquake, or disaster risk. They are also accessible to major commercial centers and hot sites, making your data available whenever you request it, 24/7/365.

Plus, the SecureSync® web interface gives you the visibility to manage your data online and quickly locate a specific tape when needed - whenever, wherever. And when your backup media moves to and from an Iron Mountain facility, our InControl® solution scans tapes at key transition points, giving you peace of mind and a verifiable chain-of-custody and audit trail.
