Tape Ark builds tape-to-cloud mass migration centre in Dallas, Texas


Tape to cloud data migration company Tape Ark has chosen Dallas, Texas as its newest location for its data migration centre due to the city’s high-speed direct connections to major cloud providers. Tape Ark says it can leverage this speed to migrate the customer’s data faster to their cloud storage.

Tape Ark has chosen Dallas, Texas as the newest location for its US mass data migration centre.

Tape Ark scouted several potential locations in the United States and has selected Dallas Texas, where large-scale data migration projects are already underway.

Tape Ark chief commercial officer Kyle Evans says the company looked at other sites including Atlanta, Denver, and Houston.

He says the company chose Dallas because the high-speed direct connections to the major cloud providers in the city are exceptional.

He states: “This speed means we can migrate our customer's data faster and more reliably to their cloud storage.”

The new Dallas operation will feature Tape Ark’s proprietary mass tape-to-cloud platform designed to migrate multi-petabyte datasets into the cloud and is an ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, HITRUST, FISMA, ITAR, SOC-1, SOC-2, and SOC-3 certified facility.

Tape Ark says the new data migration centre will initially be capable of handling up to half an exabyte of tape-to-cloud data migration (500Pb) per annum with plans to expand the operation and connections over the next 24 months.

The location gives them direct on-ramps to our cloud partners with Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Backblaze, and Wasabi in very close proximity.

“This is the first of two new operations planned globally for Tape Ark as we grow our business in the USA, Europe and Asia Pacific regions,” Tape Ark president and CEO Guy Holmes says.

“Our major customers in media and entertainment, energy, public sector, financial services, healthcare, and resources are enjoying the benefits of rapidly migrating their highly valuable datasets and realising new value once in the cloud,” notes Holmes.
