I've learned first hand of their strict standards of zero hard errors, zero fatal errors, and zero server track errors on each tape carrying the ECHO name. They guarantee that every single track of data on every ECHO tape has been overwritten, read, and guaranteed free of such errors. And it's the most earth-friendly product of its kind available.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) August 6, 2008
Encore Data Products, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Echo Tape to their ever growing stable of products that includes 80 brands and over 1,500 individual products.
"I have never ventured into certified tape until now, but Echo Tape offers such a high-quality product at such an attractive price point, I knew I had to offer them to my customers," Encore Data Products President Jeff Burgess says. "I've learned first hand of their strict standards of zero hard errors, zero fatal errors, and zero server track errors on each tape carrying the ECHO name. They guarantee that every single track of data on every ECHO tape has been overwritten, read, and guaranteed free of such errors. And it's the most earth-friendly product of its kind available."
In addition to the savings a customer already gets with ECHO products, Encore Data Products is running an introductory offer of an additional 10% until August 30. Like all EDP products (http://www.encoredataproducts.com), there is free shipping on most orders sent to the continental U.S. Burgess. "We know that once people try ECHO, they will switch to them for good."
The ECHO certification process begins with secure and safe transportation of used media to their facility. Tapes then undergo complete and thorough data eradication with overwrite of 100% of every track and byte of media. Every tape is validated with a complete read test to verify eradication of data. Following this process, tapes are put through rigorous testing on OEM drives to ensure zero permanent, zero gross, and zero server track errors, which a process stricter than ANSI standards. Then tapes are cleaned, shrink-wrapped, and packaged.
"Certified media" is simply magnetic media that is being reused, Burgess explains. Currently, there are many definitions of what constitutes certified media. Different levels of testing exist to verify the condition of used media, and there is no one universal standard to which media is held to be considered certified. ECHO is dedicated to offering a consistently high quality, reliable solution within the certified tape media marketplace, and promoting the education, understanding and development of certified tape as a viable alternative to new media.
"For those looking for a green solution to tape and some of the older formats are not readily available anymore, Echo is the clear choice," Burgess says.
