Mild-mannered operators by day, caped tape-handlers by night. Shine a light on your backup processes. Save the day with automated backup and recovery, plus audit-friendly media management.

While at a finance industry software conference in Orlando this fall, I had an interesting conversation with a customer from a regional bank. He wanted to automate his night processing but was concerned about backups, specifically what to do with the tapes after backups. His operator today unloads the tapes for him and gets them off-site during the night.
Auditors had not been particularly excited about this process, and he admitted that they'd had problems in the past where the person responsible had lost a tape somewhere between the computer and the off-site box.
