It's vital to set up a disaster recovery plan with offsite tape and media storage so that data can be easily recovered in an emergency. First, data should be backed up onto tapes or discs, then it should be securely stored off-site.

Our offsite tape storage service includes a simple rotation process for your data, using specialist lockable media transit cases, handled by trained, vetted and uniformed staff, scheduled to suit your own unique requirements.

We 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

SDS Document Storage will deliver your stored data to an agreed location on a scheduled rotation agreed by the customer or if an emergency rotation is required this can be arranged. Moving your backup tape and media storage offsite will help you to create a secure risk management plan to protect your business.

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 we store is individually barcoded and is scanned at various stages of its journey: when it is 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 every tape, meaning you can track your items at any time throughout the offsite tape storage process.

If you need your tapes returning, you can use our 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.
