Do You Need a Media Rotation Solution To Support Your Backup Strategy?

The Data Vault’s tape rotation services support your backup strategy by ensuring your most recent backups are securely transferred to our media vault for safekeeping, and your offsite media is cycled back to you in a precise and sequential manner. We work with you to create a backup rotation schedule tailored to your business requirements, whether it’s:

  • Daily
  • Weekly
  • Monthly
  • Outside of standard business hours

Barcode tracking technology creates a verifiable audit trail for every item in your media inventory the moment it’s sent offsite or delivered back to you. And our proprietary tape management system includes a secure web portal that makes it easy to request tapes, generate reports and adjust your rotation schedule as needed.

Secure Tape Rotation

The Data Vault is committed to the security of your data. We never use third-party couriers for the delivery of your media. All tape rotations are performed by our own screened, uniformed data protection staff member, using GPS-tracked vehicles. Specialized media containers ensure your backup tapes are securely handled and protected from the elements during transfer. We adhere to strict chain of custody procedures at all times.

Tape Rotation for Offsite Media Protection

A backup strategy protects your organization from unexpected data loss. But your backup strategy is only as effective as your media protection plan. Our backup rotation services protect your backup media from theft, fire, flood and natural disasters.

At the Data Vault, our media vault is designed for the long-term security and preservation of sensitive backup media and features:

  • A 4-hour fire rating
  • Steel vault door
  • FM-200 fire suppression system

Inside the vault, climate control and monitoring systems regulate the temperature and humidity levels, while entry access controls, motion detectors and surveillance systems provide constant security for your inventory. Only The Data Vault’s screened and qualified employees have access to our media vault. All access is monitored by an independent security company.

We offer expedited, emergency delivery services to meet your disaster recovery and business continuity needs. Your backup media can be delivered from our vault to any pre-designated hot site.
