Tape Archive Migration

When migrating and/or consolidating your backup and archive data from a legacy system to a new archive system, Kroll Ontrack can help to make these projects stress-free.

Migration to a new archive system

The backup and archive systems implemented by organizations in past decades can be very costly to maintain, and difficult to quickly access data from when required. It makes sense to consolidate and migrate legacy archive data into the modern archive system that you are currently using, especially if you anticipate the need to access tape data often.

Kroll Ontrack is an expert at data migration, consolidation and manipulation, and has performed similar projects for many FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies globally.

Migration to minimize the cost of tape restores

A legacy data migration project may be required if your business anticipates a large volume of archive tape restores in the near future, such as for a merger due diligence or upcoming legal proceedings. In such cases having the archived data stored on a SAN or other storage mechanism can greatly speed-up the processing and searching of data and reduce costs.

You can gain rapid, yet cost effective access to your archived data by utilizing Kroll Ontrack. If you then require legal or forensic assistance Kroll Ontrack can assist with these needs.
