Best Practices: Moving from Tape to Disk
To completely address the problems of tape, the optimal solution is to back up all data to disk onsite, replicate the backup data to disk offsite, and entirely eliminate tape along with its associated drawbacks – provided that the cost is equivalent to that of tape.
Unfortunately, since disk cost more per gigabyte than tape, finding a solution to use far less disk to store the same amount of data is crucial.
This white paper details best practices for cost effectively transitioning from tape to disk. Read on to discover how disk backup with deduplication provides a more refined approach to this process.
