Offsite backup tape storage for media tapes and hard drives

Almost every business stores information digitally. If something unexpected happens, backup tape storage is essential to ensure business continuity. Your data is your business’s most important asset. Managing your backup data efficiently, safely, and securely is more crucial than ever. That’s why TIMG offers traditional offsite tape storage and tape vaulting as well as a portal for managing your backups. Our secure backup tape storage mitigates the risk of damaging data loss or privacy breach. Be secure in the knowledge that your business can recover any lost data should something untoward occur.


Is backup tape storage right for you?

  • Are you worried about business continuity and revenue loss?
  • Do you need to backup your business data offline through a secure vault-based storage facility?
  • Are you paying too much for your existing tape vaulting services?
