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

Recertified or Dual Life Media<br />Recertified tape is previously used media that has been put through a stringent refurbishment process<br />100% full length tested, 12 point inspected, 4 pass data erasure, data sanitised, drive tested, repackaged.<br />All current and legacy formats available including reel-to-reel<br />Guaranteed:<br />90 days satisfaction guarantee<br />1 year system level performance <br />Lifetime material and workmanship guaranteed<br />Between 20-50% cheaper than new media<br />No tape ends up in landfill<br />Full ECO- certification process<br />
  9. 9. Where to use recertified media<br />Many organisations have backup operations and archive<br />Tape media is guaranteed for up to 30,000 read / write operations<br />Backup tape is used many times over whereas archive media is written once and read rarely.<br />Archive media is then usually crushed once the archive has expired<br />Using recertified media for archives can reduce tape costs considerably<br />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.<br />
