It is sure that you won’t any more worry for data storage recovery. Because you now have the best of data backup tapes which are going to help with a perfect recovery of the lost data that have been moving on since a long time. These are designed with magnetic tape drives that were first used for the purpose of data storage rightly on mainframe computers since a decade. Later these magnetic tapes became the major source for the main storage medium. In these the data are compressed into smaller size than that of the files on hard disks. These can be easily connected to a computer with the help of fibre channel or even with fire wire or other interfaces.
Today these are stored at tape libraries housed drive and even at tape cartridges with entire backup data sets. Right for the DR, companies would then transport backup tapes to off site locations with often contracting through other services. For these earlier the computer operators would store a program and the data is being used on tape so that the job could be moved off the computer for temporary storage and reloaded when it is required to be run again.
These are truly different from those of magnetic tapes because they are going to provide with a primary target by providing longer and more durable data storage which can provide by itself. The customers can improve their backup processes by combining the two because of their individual strength and weakness. The disks are not usually portable but the tapes do are portable with being reliable. But a single disk error can render an entire series of backups useless because there are many disks based backup applications performing a broad and block level incremental backups continuously throughout the day while the tapes are backed up less frequently.
These do are based on security with the priority to encrypt the data and ship the tapes off site as soon as they have been written to limit the opportunities of getting stolen. These are being used with reputable services for the off- site tape storage with controlling physical access to those of tape drives.
