BOSaNOVA Inc. has recently released a video on YouTube which talks about the security of data on your tape backups. The video demostrates how easy it is to "read tape data" using a simple PC, tape drive and the Tapewise application! To prevent this from happening, any "secure" data should be encrypted with a device like Paranoia from DISUK

We've been having some issues on the server recently, it's running slower and having too many failures. For that reason Tapewise logowe are currently looking at new server hosting options in preparation to move this site (and our others).

In other news, it may seem as though we've not been doing much on Tapewise (which is half true!) but we will have some exciting news in the very close future. On top of that we will be announcing a new product!

Well they say no news is good news! Not on a website IMO (in my opinion) so I thought I'd just post a quick update as to what is going on. We have made several minor bug fixes thanks to the input from our current users and also those currently testing Tapewise. This are mostly minor detailing problems on the new HTML formatted results, however we are always keen to hear about new ideas of problems with Tapewise.

On another note please make sure you are running the latest version of Tapewise, before submitting any support requests, as it is possible your issue has already been fixed or hardware is supported in the latest release.

3592We have now added support for the latest IBM 3592 E05 (TS1220) drive. This is capable of writing in the older J1A mode or the new E05 mode, and as usual in Tapewise you can select what mode to write in, and secondly the scaling to use (full tape 300/500GB Native or 35%  60/100GB Uncompressed). This will be in the next release due soon after we make a few minor changes/improvements to the SPTI core again.

Tapewise releaseData Product Services Ltd. are pleased to announce the latest release of the Tapewise software. This is a recommended upgrade which is full of improvements, new hardware support and a couple of minor bug fixes, full list is available in the "Read more..." option below.

Our biggest new feature is the switch from static text to HTML reports at the end of a task, these include a mini TEM graph which is click-able to see a full size one. This is an option which needs to be changed in the setup screen so that the results are shown as HTML instead of plain text!
