Preserve, restore, convert and securely store your tapes and historical media.

Tape restoration and virtualisation

At ZircoDATA, our team of restoration and conversion experts goes above and beyond in addressing diverse data recovery demands. Our restoration and conversion experts deal with many data recovery requests, from ad-hoc emergency requirements, to cataloguing and maintaining a database of historical media. From start to finish, we will carefully collect your tapes, securely transport them and begin the restoration and/or conversion process before securely delivering them back to you in the format of your choice.

Tape Storage Media Vaults

Tapes can easily get damaged if not stored in appropriately controlled environments. The heat, cold and humidity can all affect the condition of your tapes. We offer solutions that will not only help to preserve your tapes and increase their longevity, but, more importantly, also retain the information stored on them. Our services include tape backup and media storage to ensure that all your valued information stays secure, even for long periods of time.

No need to worry about the safety of your stored media. Our off-site storage features media vaults that are climate controlled by state-of-the- art ventilation and cooling systems and will store your tapes in optimal conditions to prevent damage from occurring. Not only is our media storage highly secure with biometric access and monitored 24 hours a day, but our vaults are also constructed from the highest- grade fireproof material. This ensures your tapes, from original copies to backup media, are in the safest place possible, away from threat and protected in the event of a disaster, whilst remaining accessible to you as required.
