In this episode I talk with Guy C. Holmes, President and CEO at Tape Ark. Tape Ark pride themselves on being the global experts in Tape to Cloud Migration. Guy and I talk about how he saw an opportunity with the early emergence of cloud computing to drive an innovative approach to data storage and management, which would enable organizations to liberate their data from legacy media to the cloud en masse. This is a fascinating discussion around global data that was locked away in tape (and paper archives) and the ability to re-activate data for innovative new use cases, or help find new discoveries previously locked away.
Tape Ark was founded in 2018 and is head quartered out of Perth, Australia.
