We know that nothing is more vital to your organisation's continuity than its data. Data lost in a fire, flood, or other emergency could affect the very survival of your business.
Setting up a disaster recovery plan, so that data can be easily recovered in an emergency, is vital. First, data should be backed up onto tapes or discs, then it should be securely stored off site.
SDS are experts in backup tape storage, offering full tracking, cost-effective collection and delivery, secure vaulted storage and a convenient web-based ordering and inventory-management service.
Collection and delivery
We travel all over the UK and offer a daily or weekly service for collections and deliveries in and around our core areas of Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester. Each tape is individually barcoded and is scanned at various stages of its journey: when its removed from site, as it enters the secure loading area, and as it’s loaded onto our vehicle.
Our drivers are fully vetted and DBS checked, and will give you a receipt for each collection or delivery. We maintain a full audit trail for each and every tape, meaning you can track your items at any time.
If you need your tapes returning, you can use online ordering service for fast, hassle-free delivery. We also run a 24-hour courier service throughout Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby and Leicester, so we’ll get your data to you quickly when it matters most.
Secure media storage
Our secure media storage vault, located at our head office in Nottingham, is dedicated to storing backup tapes and disks. The vault is:
- Fire and flood resistant
- Protected by fire and burglar alarms linked to police and fire stations via BT’s Redcare service
- Temperature and humidity controlled
- Accessed via a Paxton-controlled door-entry system
- Accessible only by our fully vetted and DBS-checked staff
