Business Challenge

Today, companies like yours are seeing a higher volume of legacy data requests. These requests consume valuable time and distract your IT staff away from their daily tasks. Perhaps you plan to satisfy requests for legacy data by keeping obsolete technology in your data center but, maintaining old backup tape systems ties up valuable space in your data center and puts a strain on your budget. In fact, the overwhelming majority of today’s average IT budgets are consumed by infrastructure maintenance leaving few resources available to spend on innovation.

What if you could...

  • Restore data without having to maintain legacy software and tape backup systems?
  • Locate and restore only the data you need at any moment?
  • Gain the confidence of your general counsel by promptly satisfying requests for specific data?

Scan, Catalog, and Index

To make legacy data more accessible to you, our expert team rebuilds tape catalogs and content indices. As a result, you’ll be better able to target future restorations and only recover what you need at that time.

Our proprietary tools can selectively recover files and emails of only targeted custodian(s) and avoid introducing unnecessary litigation exposure to your organization.
