The Tape Archiving Add-On:

Take Tape Support to the Next Level

Get top-level tape support for popular modern OS, such as Windows Server 2016 to 2008, and SBS.
Compress and encrypt your tape backups with ease!

Perform Different Tape Backups

You've got a tape infrastructure, or want to store your backups on tape. No problem!

Our Tape Archiving Add-on lets you perform full, differential or incremental backups to standalone tape media.

Modern Windows OS Support

Don't miss out on advanced backup and recovery features just because you have a tape infrastructure!

With our Tape Archiving Add-on, we offer full support for Windows Server 2016 to 2008, SBS 2011, and Windows 7 to 10!

Top-Level Tape Encryption

Give your tape backups the best protection possible with military-grade 265-bit AES Encryption.

Our encryption techniques are perfect for keeping your tape backups safe during long term storage!

Powerful Data Compression

Looking to make the most of your tape space? Our powerful multi-threaded compression allows you to fit massive amounts of data on your tapes!

Our open zip format means your data isn't locked behind proprietary code, either - so your backups completely belong to you.

Tape Labelling & Alerts

Our software lets you conveniently label each tape in your backup rotation, so you can identify which ones are being used.

Receive intuitive alerts if your tapes aren't loaded properly, saving you from a failed backup job.

Easy Restoration from Tape

If you ever lose data, BackupAssist Restore Console makes it incredibly easy to restore it from tape whenever you need it.

Enjoy the benefits of high-level tape encryption and compression, without sacrificing data recovery time!
