Consume tape in the cloud

Leverage tape via the cloud with HubStor’s Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS).

Free yourself from legacy tape methodologies

The old-school approach to leveraging tape costs you precious time.

Sound familiar?

  • You deal with your tape library and some archaic interface for writing data to tape.
  • You handle tape media and have a contract for it to be stored offsite.
  • You don’t have good visibility or control of your tape archives.
  • For long-term retention, you need to deal with rotating the tape media.
  • You hope there’s never a legal scenario that requires you to perform discovery on the data stored on tape.

The problem is that this model is an administrative burden, eating up your time and attention.

Get modern tape simplicity via the cloud at competitive prices

The HubStor Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solution gives you modern convenience to consume tape in the cloud for fully-burdened pricing as low as $0.003 per GB monthly. HubStor writes your backups and other data to the cloud’s Archive tier (physically tape in the cloud), and HubStor does the job of simplifying how you manage and recall the data you need.

How HubStor simplifies tape:

  • HubStor automates data flow from your infrastructure into the cloud’s tape tier.
  • A metadata index in the cloud gives you full visibility of your data.
  • Full-text indexing can even be applied, giving you content search of the data on tape.
  • Data governance features give you control to manage retention, tagging, and chargeback in place.
  • HubStor enables pinpoint access to your data — recall just the files you need.
