Tape Duplication

We can copy (duplicate / replicate) virtually any computer tape or cartridge, including 4mm DAT / DDS, 3480/3490/3570/3590, AIT, 8mm Exabyte, LTO, DLT, SDLT, SLR & VXA.

We're thorough. Every duplicated tape is verified against the original to ensure every replication is an exact copy. And whether your tapes are in WordNet, NTBACKUP, BackupExec, Arcserve, Netbackup, TAR, CPIO, VMS Backup, Legato Networker, BRU, SAVLIB or some other format, we're fast. We have banks of tape drives and servers running 24/7 with highly trained, motivated staff to oversee duplication.

Some of our most common tape duplication requests:

1/2" 9-track reel copying / duplicating / replicating

The ½" reel-to-reel 9 track magnetic tape storage format, introduced in 1964 by IBM, was an evolution of their earlier 7-track half-inch tape. The drives wrote 9 tracks in parallel, one for each bit in an 8-bit byte, and one for parity. Originally, drives read and wrote at 800 bpi (bits per inch), but later generations sported densities of 1600, 3200 and 6250 bpi. The tapes themselves came in lengths of 800, 2400, and finally 3600 feet, yielding a maximum capacity of 260MB at 6250 bpi..
