  • 6. Save Cost and Save the Environment
    The ‘green’ message!
    Tape is environmentally bad. It is made up of hard and soft plastics, metals such as chromium, ferrous, etc
    All used tape is currently shredded and dumped in landfill
    Landfill leakage of heavy metals is dangerous
    60% of WEE waste is exported to developing countries
    There is an alternative that will save money, ensure data is eradicated and will preserve the environment
    Refilling and recycling photocopier toners is standard practice so why not apply the principle to tape media
  • 7. New Media Supply

  • 8. Recertified or Dual Life Media

    1 year system level performance
    Lifetime material and workmanship guaranteed
    Between 20-50% cheaper than new media
    No tape ends up in landfill
    Full ECO- certification process
  • 9. Where to use recertified media
    Many organisations have backup operations and archive
    Tape media is guaranteed for up to 30,000 read / write operations
    Backup tape is used many times over whereas archive media is written once and read rarely.
    Archive media is then usually crushed once the archive has expired
    Using recertified media for archives can reduce tape costs considerably
    Supporting archives on latest technology can also be expensive. So using older technology for long term archive with guaranteed availability can also reduce operational costs.
  • 10. Media Buy Back Program
    Emediaplus will buy your old tape media
    Improve your tape TCO by selling media for cash or credits
    Data eradication included within buy back
    Credits can be used against new media or recertified media purchases
    By selling your tape, you are helping the environment as no tape goes to landfill
    Reduce your costs for data eradication and tape disposal
  • 11. Data Eradication
    Clients are concerned over data eradication
    Crushing, although environmentally abhorrent does eradicate the data
    eMediaplus has developed a stringent process to ensure all recertified tapes are as ‘good as new’
    eMediatplus has developed proprietary technology to eradicate data where degauss is not permissible
    Independent verification of data eradication from Kroll Ontrack
    ‘No data could be retrieved’
