Ideal for unattended backup and restore, tape automation combines a high level of performance with user-friendly "no-manual" operation. With robotic mechanisms that automatically swap tape media in and out of drives, tape automation can help administrators back up information while away from the office. Tape automation systems can house multiple tape media cartridges enabling administrators to retain a large quantity of duplicate, backup information for long term storage.
