Magstar 3570 AS/400 to LTO Unix Data Conversion

Restoring data from tapes when you no longer have the drive to read them can be problematic. Add to this a change of operating platform from AS/400 to UNIX and the need to therefore restore AS/400 objects on a UNIX system in a usable form, and the problems increase dramatically. This was the case for one customer and it was beginning to look as if they would need to re-instate their original system to have any chance of accessing the data, then they contacted Altirium.

To Be Sure, To Be Sure

A tape archive can grow with impressive yet daunting speed, and with it the volume of data that is held within it. With the pressure to be able to respond to internal restore requests or regulatory demands for data, knowing that files can be restored from the archive is essential. Since a single copy of the data at one location is vulnerable to tape failure, fire or flood, having the tapes tested and a second copy made can give great peace of mind.
