In the digital transformation era, data management and accessibility are at the foundation of driving data insights and data intelligence.

Today’s organizations manage huge volumes of digital data, much of which continues to live on tape. While tape-based records are secure and reliable, manual processes make it difficult to quickly locate specific information when the need arises. Additionally, accessing and harnessing information from tape to run big data processes and analytics can challenge most IT organizations. Plus, skilled resources are required to maintain the tape environment in order to extract any information and insights.

Iron Mountain Data Restoration and Migration Services is a fully managed tape-to-cloud solution designed to support the specific needs of your digital transformation agenda. It provides seamless, secure access to tape- based information as well as a high-speed on-ramp to clouds of your choice.

By applying a multi-tier approach to your data management strategy, you can ensure your compliance and business requirements are being met, all while utilizing a lower-cost tier for long-term data retention.
