Knowing what legacy backup data you have becomes critical any time you’re faced with an audit, litigation or discovery request. But as your media library becomes larger and increasingly complex – and includes multiple media types – keeping track of everything is no easy task. And when you struggle to locate and retrieve the required data in a timely manner, it can open your organisation up to considerable financial, brand risk and skyrocketing costs.
Iron Mountain provides a managed, scalable service to securely archive data offsite and restore specific data on-demand, in the event of a compliance or legal discovery. The process is auditable, defensible and repeatable, with a predictable cost. Iron Mountain® Restoration Assurance Programme helps you to know what data to keep, for how long, and gives you the ability to recover from legacy media when you need it.
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and backup systems, it will likely require a considerable amount of time to access and read your old tapes using outdated hardware and software.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.
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 centre 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.
