In a world where every enterprise has data that would lead to catastrophe if lost, stolen or unintentionally disclosed, addressing this risk should be at the top of IT priorities. In this tutorial, learn about the different tape backup encryption approaches, and the pros and cons of each

Top Trends in eDiscovery #9: From Backup Tape to Archiving

Archiving is getting more popular for business processes like eDiscovery and I say it’s high time. Backups are essential for short term data recovery but were not designed to serve long-term retention needs. Yet many corporations still use backups for long-term data retention instead of deploying archive processes. We believe that archiving adoption is on an upward path but making the capital case for it can be a challenge when backup tape is already a fact of life.

News in review: Amazon Glacier puts the freeze on tape

Ten years ago, a storage executive at an early disk-based backup vendor said to me, “I’ve sold $100 million in tape systems that no one wanted to buy.” Fast-forward to today, and enterprises are still begrudgingly buying tape and tape drives. However, new entrants in the cloud archiving market may finally signal the beginning of the end for tape in the enterprise.

Tape Libraries: Why, When and Where?

A technology publication that shall go unnamed posted the news last year that Amazon Glacier was a “tape-killing cloud” and that it would “devastate the [tape] industry.”

Not exactly. We do believe that smaller tape implementations are going the way of the dodo bird. Cloud backup is quickly replacing small standalone tape drives and autoloaders for daily backup, and as low-end tape equipment ages IT replaces it with cloud for long-term backup retention.

However, tape housed in mid-sized and enterprise scale libraries are growing strongly in several high-value computing and industry segments. Thus the question for IT becomes not “Should I use tape?” but “When should I invest in tape libraries?”

Backup Balancing Act: Growing Pains with Data Backup and the Cost of Migration

Backup these days is, as I view it, an incredibly interesting topic. Data protection has always been a challenging operation for the business. When you think about it, it is one of the most physical of systems, requiring tremendous amounts of data movement and storage - moving and storing the same bits over and over again with such requirements for speed and then storage that the task has at many different times in the history of IT seemed like mission impossible.
