Hi There!

A number of our customers have offsite storage of documents and data (Tapes/disks etc) and lately we have had a lot of feedback about the costs of this. 

I am wondering who are the feasible alternative providers (No cloud thanks) to both physical document storage and Tape/Disk Storage?

We need someone who can pick up the media daily/weekly etc on a schedule and also secure document destruction.

We use Crown, but I wasn't involved in the selection process, so I have no idea of costs.

The data vault in invercargill offers such a service, though you probably need to tell us where you are

I know this industry pretty imminently.

The big players are "Online Security Services", "Recall" and "Iron Mountain". I used to be involved with Online and they are OK but not the best business culture, especially in their parent - Freightways. Online recently bought Iron Mountain. I would say stick with Recall, probably the best in that group IMO. Have they thought about digitizing the files?
