Falken Tire Partner IMT Builds Data Center From Ground Up

Keeping Data Backed Up

Falken Tire did keep its StorageTek SL500 tape libraries for data backups. When the libraries were first moved to the new data center, they were configured with LTO-4 tape drives.

The company had considered upgrading the tape libraries to LTO-6. However, since the data center was completed, IMT has helped Falken Tire implement a cloud gateway appliance from Campbell, Calif.-based Panzura to allow the company to access a public cloud.
