With NAB 2015 – and our NAB blogging on Around the Storage Block on storage for media & entertainment – in full swing, we thought it would be a good time to ask: Do you know how healthy your archive data is on tape? Do you wonder if you’ll be able to get it back when you need it?

 

Like your own personal health, it’s important to have routine check-ups to detect any possible problems early. Today, I’m talking about how the HP StoreEver Data Verification process can measure the health of your data stored on LTO tape and how it all works.

Complement your cloud storage with HP StoreEver LTO Tape

By Mark Fleischhauer, HP StoreEver Tape Storage Solutions Engineering Manager

 

tNAS2J.jpgSo you decided to deploy a cloud storage solution to protect your archive data. Now come some important questions: 

 

What are you going to do if you lose your network connection and you need your data? What if your cloud provider decides to close its doors? How are you going to deal with the slow upload speeds? How about data that you don’t to want store in the cloud because of security concerns?

 

By adding a complementary tape-as-NAS (tNAS) solution on the front end, now you can address these issues using cost-effective LTO tape storage.
