  • Product Description
The suitable backup routine : provides the best protection against data loss of all kinds
tape drives make backup fast, easy, affordable, reliable.
Reliable - When it comes to data protection, it's safety first. Tape has proved itself a reliable medium, and tape drives themselves have never been more reliable
Data loss is a serious threat to companies of all sizes, and catastrophic data loss can destroy a business. But most data loss isn't the result of a big disaster, it's caused by human error, viruses, and disk malfunctions. A suitable backup routine provides the best protection against data loss of all kinds. And tape technology remains the most efficient and cost-effective means to back up your system, whether you're a small business or a global 24x7 operation.
tape drives make backup : Fast - Speed is critical because your data is constantly growing while the time available for backup is shrinking. Even the slowest tape drive writes 1 MB per second and the fastest 30 MB per second - that means a 200 GB backup can be completed in less than two hours. Easy - Unlike other storage methods, tape drives offer a range of media that allows you to back up all the data on a small to medium-sized server - up to 200 GB - on a single cartridge. And tape backup captures your system setup information, as well as your data, allowing you to restore your entire system when disaster strikes. What's more, your software can schedule backups to happen automatically at the time most convenient for you. Affordable - Per gigabyte of storage, tape is the most cost-effective way to store large amounts of data. The compact size of tape cartridges also helps keep down your storage costs.
The DAT 24 Tape Drive is a reliable solution for the data backup needs in small, medium, and enterprise businesses. The low HP DDS media and drive prices give DAT owners a low cost of ownership as well as outstanding value.
