About this webinar:

IT teams regularly change their storage providers, taking advantage of new technologies as they arise, developing and improving processes to reduce back-up and recovery windows, and generally doing everything they can to reduce management time – everything they can do to put the data process into the background so they focus on helping drive the business forward. 

Over time, this results in  - often critical - legacy data residing in archives controlled by out-dated, unsupported software, on old appliances which the current IT team is not familiar with: a ‘betamax’ archive. How do IT teams avoid the problem of unusable legacy data? What happens when legal ask you to retrieve emails, contracts and documents from a platform of the past?

In this Computing webseminar, our exclusive research reveals the extent of the legacy data timebomb, the risks inherent in letting ‘sleeping tapes lie’, and discusses practical solutions to offloading the problem.
