Is your organization seeing massive increases in data creation, while being challenged to meet specific data compliance rules? Regardless if you must adhere to the regulations of HIPAA, FACTA, Sarbanes-Oxley, SOX, or any others, it can be a major challenge to build up the right infrastructure, policies and procedures to comply.
As revealed by major organizations such as Yahoo, Google, and Facebook, anything can go wrong -- at any time. There can be anything from security breaches, to bugs, to system failures. This is why a reported 80 percent of organizations make use of a combination of disk and tape.
Just when many “experts” in the data storage industry were raving about disk and/or the cloud being the end-all-be-all -- LTO tape has come to the rescue.
1. LTO tape is stable and can be stored for 30-plus years.
2. The latest versions of LTO hold massive amounts of data -- so it’s very cost-effective.
3. Disk’s online nature makes susceptible to hackers, bugs, viruses, and more.
4. When disk comes crashing down, LTO tape backups save the day.
5. Tape can be recycled and reused.
Using tape along side disk, is a perfect scenario. Data that needs to be constantly and quickly accessed can be stored on disk. Tape can be used for continuous backups. Thus, if anything goes wrong, data can be recovered in a timely manner.
When considering data compliance, tape provides 100 percent assurance that an organizations most important data is always secure. The fact that data can completely be expunged via degaussing (only on proper equipment), also makes tape valuable where compliance is concerned.
