Data-driven businesses need to protect their assets. Whether tape storage is your primary strategy or a backup solution used in conjunction with disk and cloud storage, TechFusion offers expert backup tape restoration services. We work with any and all formats and promise quick turnaround times.
Tape Restoration Services of All Formats
Since the 1950s, enterprises, both large and small, have relied on tape drives for data storage. With the advent of the digital age, tapes still have distinct advantages, especially for storing large amounts of data that can be accessed long-term offline.
Tape is especially beneficial when the data needs to be archived but doesn’t require regular access. In these situations, tape backup is advantageous because of its capacity capabilities and cost efficiency. Plus, as digital technologies continue to evolve, tape is a reliable standby. If tapes are maintained adequately, they can store data for 30 years. That timeframe can be extended even further with our help.
Regardless of your tapes’ type, age, or format, TechFusion can do backup tape restoration services to recover data from any tape, including:
- 4mm DAT, DDS, DDS2, DDS3, DDS4 and DDS5
- Super DLT & DLT, DLT VS80 and VS160 tapes
- Exabyte 8mm
- SONY AIT 1, 2 and 3
- Travan tapes
- QIC mini cartridge tapes
- OnStream ADR 30 and 50 GB
- LTO 1, 2, 3 and 4
- VXA 1 and 2
- Mammoth 1 and 2

We have experience in backup tape restoration for a variety of scenarios, such as:
- Physical damage and broken tapes
- Back up failures
- Overwritten tapes
- Smoke, chemical, and water damage
- Sabotaged or intentionally compromised tapes
Though it’s becoming increasingly common to use disk and cloud storage solutions, tape is still a viable option, and, in some industries, it’s a necessity. This concept is especially true for companies and individuals that have high-security standards.
For example, some tape formats, such as LTO-Ultrium, are natively equipped with encryption features that go above and beyond virtually anything available from digital and cloud providers.
Another scenario is when either legal or internal requirements dictate that an organization needs to maintain physical control of data. In this instance, storing information in the cloud might not be an option.
Tape to Cloud Backup & Migration Regardless of the Type of Damage
The decision to migrate archived tape data to the cloud is especially relevant as cloud storage becomes more prevalent and cost-efficient. This conversation is particularly relevant for organizations that need to access data on-demand for compliance and regulatory issues, as well as eDiscovery.
Even in the most straightforward situations, migrating data from tapes to the cloud can be a massive undertaking. And, when there’s damage to the underlying tapes, the project becomes more complex.
Tape restoration can be challenging to do in-house, even with a skilled IT department. Because data recovery is what we do best. TechFusion is uniquely equipped to handle the task of backup tape restoration services quickly and securely.
