Both tape and cloud offer distinct benefits, and using one without the other may not provide you with the most secure and economical data storage solution.

On November 28, 2011, President Obama released a memorandum that required all federal agencies to assess the state of their current records management programs, identify gaps and create a detailed improvement plan for submission to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

need to achieve these goals while ensuring that all
processes are executed as efficiently as possible.
Secure, Compliant, Cost-Effective, Environmentally Responsible Information Destruction
The amount of information your organization has to manage is growing at an incredible pace, creating new challenges every day. On the one hand, you’re tempted to retain as much data as possible for fear of losing critical information. On the other, there’s the danger of maintaining expired information, which opens you up to operational and financial risks.
Healthcare providers are seeing exponential growth of digital information, from medical images to the Electronic Health Record (EHR). The volume alone has multiplied at incredible rates, while file sizes and the use of new modalities continue to grow. The combination has created a myriad of storage cost, protection and management challenges.
Enable your organization’s adoption of an electronic medical record (EMR) with:
— Customizable imaging programs that help you
scale back reliance on physical records and make a
smooth migration to a fully digital workflow
— Secure, compliant storage that maintains
chain-of-custody throughout a record’s lifecycle —
while protecting electronic information
— Best-practice workflows and on-demand digital
conversion that drive efficiencies and reduce costs
