Long-term Data Retention
Tape archiving for long-term data retention
Tape archives are often confused with data backups. Tape archives protect older information that is not needed for everyday business operations but may occasionally need to be accessed for investigations and compliance requirements.
Plan B’s Long-term Data Retention service is available to Online Backup, Online Snapshot, and Veeam Cloud Connect customers. The service offers a cost-efficient option to retain data and store it offsite at a secure storage facility for up to seven years. The data can be accessed if required, but recovery times will be dependent on the time required to obtain and restore from tape rather than disk.
This service includes:
- Cost-efficient long-term data retention in a managed, secure environment for up to seven years (for subscribers to qualifying services)
- Ability to request recovery from tape when required
