The primary advantage and exceptional value of the Intelligent Tape Archive is the application of a layer of intelligence over previously “disconnected” tapes, enabling every possible action that might be needed or want to be taken now or in the future. Managed by the client or SullivanStrickler through Invenire, our online metadata review portal, providing faster time to data and delivering insight on demand. Simply stated, Invenire on AWS is all that’s required to transform your outmoded legacy environment into an Intelligent Tape Archive.
Just because it’s in a cloud doesn’t mean it’s smarter.
To the contrary – migrating data en-masse from tape to any cloud is simply not the best move. The reason is simple: after years of largely unstructured data being added to tape archives with varying retention schedules and questionable values, a mass move to the cloud only means you’ll end up paying more for hosting and moving large amounts of data in the future, 90% of which you probably don’t need.
When it comes to legacy data storage, less is more.
For companies who want to remove forever the data classes existing on tapes that are either junk, not useful to the business, or not required for compliance or litigation, The Intelligent Tape Archive enables the immediate and ongoing fulfillment of those objectives. Metadata stays in the Cloud, essential retained data on tape, moved to the cloud later if required.
Through use of SullivanStrickler non-native file restoration and migration technologies TRACS TMF/TDF/TSF, we can selectively migrate only the data class, files and custodians that are required to keep. Its retroactive data privacy management from an archived state without the costs of data restoration
