Tape migration can be a major undertaking. Handling the project internally diverts significant resources from your team, and a professional tape migration partner can help your enterprise handle tape conversion securely and efficiently.
To understand the benefits of professional tape migration, it’s helpful to take an overhead view of what the project entails. Tape migration densities increase with every new generation (the current-generation Linear Tape Open format, LTO-9, supports compressed capacities of up to 45 terabytes).
New tape technologies like Linear Tape File System (LTFS) can increase data access times significantly, allowing for near-instant access to individual files. Migrating to a newer format can result in tremendous savings for an enterprise — but the project requires a dedicated approach.
Total Data Migration provides an array of professional tape services that can reduce the cost of data cartridge migration. Our secure process allows your team to remain focused on other IT tasks and ensures reliable access to your data. Below, we’ll explain the process in detail; if you’re currently planning a tape migration project, reach out to our team for a free consultation.
