Restore any media. In any format. Anywhere in the world.
When identifying and accessing data is vital, SullivanStrickler delivers the fastest, most comprehensive and advanced data restoration, voice logger technology, and backup tape restoration services, paired with the proven and reliable expertise. Restore any media. In any format. Anywhere in the world.
Data restoration from backup tape requires knowledge of backup software, tape formats, and even application data itself. Our engineers have mastered all the necessary skills over the past 30 years. We create routines for varying levels of interrogation into data on backup tapes and backup sessions. And we’re continually developing solutions for all data variances. As a result, we have amassed an extensive database of emulated back-up environments.
Sullivan|Strickler technology is fast and flexible and delivers unmatched reporting for audit trails and defensibility. If you have data that can’t go off-site, our solutions can be deployed at any client location, usually within 24 hours. Our experts arrive on-premises with all the necessary tools required to extract the data without disruption to the client.
Most often “created data” must be retained long after the system that created it is being used. Traditional legacy backup systems require expensive software licenses, hardware support, and human resources. And all this just to enable the occasional restore requested by a legal or compliance department. That’s why we created a more efficient, more advanced solution set we call The Intelligent Tape Archive.
With the Intelligent Archive, you can completely retire your legacy backup system while gaining faster, more comprehensive access to your legacy data. Restore data on demand while eliminating hardware, software, personnel, and other costly resources. Reduce cost, add intelligence, and command your legacy data with greater insight and ease.
First, we emulate and virtualize your legacy system(s) in our High Availability Vault (HAV) so you can access it online. Next, we populate all backup media and backup system metadata to Invenire, our browser-based metadata review platform. Invenire locates files, mailboxes and databases instantly so the exact tape or tape set can be restored.
TRACS (Tape Restore and Cataloging System) then scans, catalogs and restores files from legacy backup tapes without the original software.
Message archives are migrated to LEAR (Legacy Email Archive Review), which consolidates messages from tape or other message archives. LEAR offers a low-cost platform that creates filtered PST’s on-demand for legal, compliance and other business needs.
Recovering call recordings and logs requires expertise in the source technologies used to create backups which are no longer maintained inside of organizations. Many large financial institutions face massive challenges for the proof-of-compliance that recovering this data poses.
Sullivan|Strickler’s legacy voice-logger tape processing helps large scale corporations across diverse vertical markets tackle this challenge. From call identification to keyword searching, seamlessly recover your logged voice data.
Our bespoke software solution TRACS-VOICE builds a data archive of all required files. It does this independently from the plethora of voice-logger system methodologies. And it also applies a consistent naming convention structure to restored files, including –
As a result, you can search, extract, convert to .wav, and play any required file.
Voice-logger systems, often from the ’90s to 2010 period, utilize helical scan technology such as 8MM, 4MM (DDS), and AIT. As such, these can be problematic because of their physical condition and age. Our expert engineers run tape drives and cartridges from all vintages of backup tape and other media. Consequently, we have developed proven techniques and protocols to restore data from even poorly maintained or damaged cartridges.
We provide legacy data solutions to some of the world’s leading organizations.
We believe companies should have total command of their legacy data. What would you like to do with yours?
