Total Cost of Ownership of ioSafe compared to online or tape backup strategies


Comparison of Data Backup Strategies

Trade Off Matrix: Value Calculation

online vaulting, tape vaulting, iosafe disk to disk comparison matrix

Please contact KL Security for a detailed cost analysis and dollarized value for your specific situation.


Backup techniques analyzed: tape vaulting, online storage, disk-to-disk, disk-to-disk-to-tape, and a combination of tape vaulting and online storage, ioSafe backup.

Costs accounted for: hardware, disposable media, personnel, service calls, tape vaulting service, online storage fees, and maintenance fees.

Key assumptions: Conservative estimate for least expensive mechanisms of backup and storage (much more expensive techniques exist), total cost of ownership over a three year period, one gigabyte per day per location added to aggregate data, internet connectivity costs NOT included (can be significant).

*The comparison above is based per location (or per office) over a 3 year time period. *
