VMS Backup Tape Data Recovery

Secure Data Recovery Services offers a full set of repair and recovery options for all OpenVMS tape formats.

The OpenVMS operating system is a popular choice due to its accessibility, power and flexibility. It offers a simple means of producing tape backups via the VMS Backup utility, which offers dependable restore functions and an ample set of options for incremental and full backups.

OpenVMS servers typically support SDLT, DLT, LTO and similar high-capacity tape formats, and various issues can prevent tape backups from functioning as expected. Businesses often face serious losses from tape decay, accidental overwrites, cartridge mechanism failings, floods and other unexpected events that coincide with server failures.

A Secure Source for VMS Backup Tape Data Recovery

OpenVMS has a number of notable security features, including encryption capabilities through VMS Backup. Security is important to OpenVMS users, and Secure Data Recovery Services takes appropriate steps to keep recovered data private, secure and protected from unauthorized access. We have a number of security credentials that demonstrate our dedication to strict data controls, including SSAE 16 Type II certification.

To provide the best possible chances of recovery, we evaluate all VMS Backup media in order to create an individual plan for each recovery. During our evaluations, we assess media damage carefully in a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, which prevents contamination; if your tape needs physical repairs, our teams will complete these procedures in this tightly controlled environment.

Our engineers have experience with .BCK files, the Files-11 file system and VMS architecture. We can treat logical issues, including overwrites and tape corruption, using a number of proprietary tools developed by our own research and development division. Additionally, we have experience with various mail archive formats and other common file types associated with some OpenVMS servers, which allows for better results.
