Distributed Tape for Backup and Archiving
Distributed tape for backup and archiving is a means by which organizations preserve secondary copies of data. Distributed tape backup solutions create copies of data on tape for logical or physical recovery, and for disaster recovery. Distributed tape as a repository for active archives enables long-term preservation of data for purposes other than operational recovery, such as compliance, records management, sporadic access to data within a business process and historical preservation.
