Stop Using Tapes


Cloud backup may be the answer for your future data protection needs, but what about your historical data?

You’ve still got to store the tapes and keep the infrastructure going for restores, costing almost as much it does today.

Offloading all the hassle and expense of your legacy backups could take years – literally.

Until now.
