Southwest Data Protection
Welcome to Southwest Data Protection, the largest privately owned off-site data protection facility in Nevada. Everyone should be aware mission-critical electronic data must be backed up and stored in a secure off-site location safe from site-level disasters. This makes good business sense, and is a critical component of any business continuity plan. Moving data to a separate, off-site location reduces your company’s risk and protects against data loss when, for example, the company’s IT infrastructure, or its critical electronic information is damaged by malicious hackers, computer viruses, fire, power failure, water or other natural disasters.
Special attention should be given to your archive media. In order to achieve the archive life expectancy specified on your media, archive tapes must be stored according to the temperature and humidity requirements specified by the manufacturer. Usually these requirements are higher than normal operating temperatures and humidity. It is important that your off-site data protection facility meet the appropriate environmental conditions so that your data is recoverable many years later if you need it.
The recommended practice is to have Southwest Data Protection regularly come on-site to remove backup sets for remote storage and return other media sets for re-introduction to the backup rotation. Rest assured, your media sets are stored in climate-controlled vaults that meet the highest standards.
Southwest Data Protection’s team will safeguard your information and provide you peace-of-mind. Our trusted vault specialists, friendly customer service staff and well-trained couriers work with state-of-the-art technology to assure that your tapes are exchanged according to your rotation schedule. The climate-controlled environment we maintain inside our data vaults is ideal for all types of media. If disaster strikes, your data will be available for quick shipment to your hot-site, any time, anywhere for business resumption.
