Minimize disruption across IT resources, IT budget and IT infrastructure through a managed services model

Data is at the core of every business. As data growth and sprawl has become the norm in todays business, regrettably, IT staff, budget and infrastructure has not grown alongside with it. Enter the rationale for Managed Services.

Iron Mountain Data Restoration and Migration Services is a fully managed solution designed to support the specific needs of your business transformation agenda bridging the gap between physical and digital. It provides seamless, secure access to tape-based information and other forms of physical media while also enabling a high-speed on-ramp to any cloud or any location.

While tape-based records are secure and reliable, they require manual processes that are often time consuming and complex. As a result, you could need to use limited IT budget and resources to find information when you need it most.

Managed Restoration

Don’t spend time and money managing legacy systems in order to respond to litigation requests

Litigation requests take time and effort to produce information from a large number of legacy backup tapes. And if you’ve recently upgraded your tape library and backup systems, it will likely require a considerable amount of time to access and read your old tapes using outdated hardware and software.

Iron Mountain can manage the process around finding, retrieving and delivering old data in a readable format in the event of a litigation or compliance request.

Litigation and compliance request? – Easily locate the information regardless systems used to backup that data

Companies are seeing a higher volume of legacy data requests in response to litigation, regulatory investigations and internal requests. But keeping infrastructure for legacy backup tape, database, and email systems tie up valuable space in your data center and are expensive to maintain.

Iron Mountain’s Managed Restoration service helps you restore archived data regardless of the software and equipment used to place that data on the tape and the format of the media. You can be confident that each request to locate information from your backed up data will be handled with precision, professionalism and predictable cost
Restoration and Migration

Media Migration

Ensure you’re complying with your industry regulations on data retention and format

Keeping your company’s data in a secure, current format is a time-consuming and strenuous task. In addition, a host of government regulations, such as SEC Rules 17a-3 and 17a-4, require the creation and storage of numerous types of records for set lengths of time in specific formats under strict security parameters.

Iron Mountain’s Media Migration solution migrates data into the appropriate format and encrypts it without interrupting your everyday data backup practice —without stretching your staff and budget.

Design an appropriate data protection and retention process to mitigate risk

The reality is that the data you may need to compile to satisfy an audit or litigation request could reside in many different locations and media formats spanning decades. And producing that data in the right format can be a daunting task. You need to mitigate the risk of failing to comply or being unable to respond to these requests in a timely manner.

Migrate your business data into the right formats for secured retention and easy access in the future by using the Iron Mountain® Media Migration service. Our experts will help you understand specific regulations and design an optimal media migration and retention process. Having an optimal process will mitigate any audit and litigation risks by keeping the data protected, but easily accessible if it’s needed and all without disrupting the current backup processes and at a predictable cost.
