Restoration Assurance Programme

Restoration Assurance Programme (RAP) provides the peace of mind that legacy backup tapes can be restored without the ongoing need to maintain the corresponding backup software and hardware.

Our proprietary techniques have been built and adapted to restore and extract data and email more efficiently and expeditiously, than could be achieved with native cataloguing, restoration, and processing technologies, with uncompromised levels of accuracy and accountability.

At TDS, we work with our clients to assure them that their data is accessible. Allow TDS to become an extension of your Information Technology team by implementing our Restoration Assurance Programme which is a subscription-based service that guarantees both scheduled as well as ad hoc restoration and extraction of email and data files from backup tapes. Our RAP provides the peace of mind that backup tapes can be restored at any time, even if the native environments are no longer available.

Whether you are looking to retire your legacy backup tape environment or simply migrate from a legacy environment to a new backup tape environment, TDS can offer you assurance that your legacy backup tapes can be properly, cost effectively, and defensibly restored without having to maintain the legacy equipment.

BACKUP TAPE FORMATS SUPPORTED

TDS supports ALL backup tape software formats commercially available over the past 30 years:

Strategic Tape Discovery

TDS Strategic Tape Discovery is a tape indexing and high level content detection programme that allows organizations to proactively prepare for and be able to respond to a litigation event or regulatory investigation.

A Strategic Tape Discovery programme provides for a strategic, iterative, and defensible plan that gives companies the ability to determine what legacy data needs to be maintained and what can be destroyed.

By implementing a Strategic Tape Discovery programme, companies stand to benefit by mitigating data management risks and costs associated with risks of maintaining Electronically Stored Information (ESI) they are not obligated to keep.

Following our approach, organizations are well positioned to address legal holds where it is likely they have swept up email from backup tapes for many more users than they are required to maintain, leading to unnecessary exposure and risk.

Additionally, should your organization find itself with an eDiscovery request where a substantial amount of data from backup tapes is required, courts are likely to look upon your organization more favourably if you have a proactive and strategic tape discovery plan in place.

Any Backup, Any Media, at Any Time...

Trusted Data Solutions can restore, index and process every backup tape format, optical disk format, and logical format that has been in commercial use over the past 30 years. This includes ALL major backup software systems and versions.

The TDS development group has extensive experience in these systems and has developed customised non-native solutions to efficiently access and restore these formats in a technically sound and legally defensible process.
