Tape backups. Yes, they're still a thing. If you want to stop using tapes but need to store immutable backups for compliance or operational reasons, attend this tech talk to learn how to make an easy switch to a cloud-based virtual tape library (VTL). AWS Storage Gateway provides a seamless drop-in replacement for tape backups with its Tape Gateway. It works with the major backup software products, so you simply change the target for your backups, and they go to a VTL that stores virtual tapes on Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier. You'll see a demo of how it works.
