Evault Backup and Recovery

Have you considered all of the complexities and constraints (i.e. costs) associated with the implementation of a tape backup process? Besides the obvious tape media expenses and device maintenance costs, which are really just the tip of an iceberg of your company’s financial commitment to the unreliable, antiquated backup methodology (compare EVault to tape), you also need to consider the following:

  • Labor costs associated with cataloging the tape backups
  • Labor costs associated with tape handling and storage
  • Recurring costs for the off-site secured tape transportation service
  • Recurring costs for off-site security facility storage and archival
  • Labor and transportation costs and surcharges involved with the requests for backup tape delivery for file or system restores.
  • The cost of delays of tape delivery for restores, or the fees for expedited deliveries
  • Maintenance costs for iSeries backup management and archival software

If you are not storing your backups offsite, then your state of data and system recoverability may be even worse than you think. Even if your current tape handling strategy includes all of the above steps, you may still be more exposed that you realize due to the inherent lack of reliability of tape media over time. Can you really count on your critical data being there and be able to be successfully restored?
