New Blueprint Makes Implementing a Backup System for Business Easy

Melbourne, Australia - June 7, 2005 - Cortex IT, the makers of BackupAssist Backup Software, has released a handy resource for business owners and administrators - the Definitive Tape Drive Success Blueprint.

"Our new resource provides customers with a blueprint for a successful backup system for businesses," said Cortex IT's CEO, Linus Chang. "Implementing a backup system is a large investment for any business. Unfortunately, when it comes to selecting and running backup hardware, we're finding that many businesses make the same costly mistakes. Our blueprint shows customers how to go about choosing appropriate equipment, and how to protect their investment. Best of all, it's available as a free download from our website."

"Most businesses understand that they could lose all their data due to a computer crash, fire or other disaster, and that backing up data is the important first step to protecting and recovering files," explained Chang. "However, many businesses are unsure of how to go about buying and running a backup system."

Purchasing a tape drive and backing up data from a computer to tape is the most popular backup system for businesses. There is a diverse range of tape drives available on the market, and it is common for even experts to choose poorly when purchasing a tape drive. Furthermore, common misuse of tape drives leads to damage to the hardware and tapes.

The blueprint contains simple tips to ensure that tape drives and tape media remain robust and reliable, information on the critical factors to consider when choosing tape drives, and a reference sheet for tape drive selection. "Use the blueprint as a guide when purchase a business backup system, and to keep the backup system running smoothly," said Chang. "The greatest value of our blueprint is the money you could save by avoiding those costly mistakes."
