Data Storage

Data vaults unlike any other.

The best disaster and failure recovery protocols demand offsite data storage. But storing backups in the boss’ basement is never advisable. Trust Underground Vaults & Storage for efficient, cost-effective data tape rotation services.

When open reels were industry standard, Underground Vaults & Storage secured them from loss, fraud and disaster. As data tape cartridges have emerged, evolved, and shrunk, we have archived them for clients across the globe and in every industry.

Significantly reduce your risk of theft, data loss due to disaster or tape degradation by entrusting your data to Underground Vaults & Storage. Our underground and aboveground secure media vaults maintain ideal climates for permanent data tape storage and active rotation.

Media Vaults

Imagine a climate-controlled bank vault, 650 ft below the earth’s surface, encased in a 400 ft thick rock member, with only two vertical access points, positioned in rural Kansas. There is no more secure place for your data tapes than our salt mine facility in Hutchinson. We also offer climate controlled media vaults in our limestone mine facilities in Kansas City and Louisville. The unique underground atmosphere at these facilities is naturally cool and dry, regardless of weather or season, an ideal situation for most magnetic media.

We also offer vault services in our above ground Wichita and Topeka facilities. Custom and standard racking is available, or you can supply your own preferred racking.

Data Tape Rotation Services (tapevaulting)

The best disaster and failure recovery protocols demand offsite data storage. But storing backups in the boss’ basement is never advisable. Trust Underground Vaults & Storage for efficient, cost-effective data tape rotation services.

Whether you have one monthly tape or 10,000 tapes a day, our people and technology are well suited to the task. Bonded and trained UV&S couriers are on the street every day. Items are barcoded and entered into our inventory management system. Daily, weekly, monthly and annual pickups can be scheduled, even years in advance.

Data Tape Library Storage

If your organization generates large volumes of data, we have a place for you. Some clients entrust data tapes in the tens of thousands to our care – all barcoded, organized, and available for quick retrieval.

Legacy Magnetic Media Archiving

Technologies and media change, but the need to store remains the same. If conversion to newer media is not cost effective, place your legacy media in our care. We’re no strangers to open reel tapes – it is estimated that 90% of the world’s data bank still exists on that media.

Disaster Recovery Services

In the event of a natural or manmade disaster, your critical data is always accessible. We can deliver your data via courier, third party carrier, or you can pick up your data tapes in person. If the situation demands, we will hop on a plane and deliver to you personally.
