Turtle data storage and transport cases

Secure storage and transportation of digital storage media to protect your valuable data

Perm-A-Store is the world leader manufacturer of permanent storage and transport cases for vital computer backup tapes and other storage media, brand name "Turtle". The name was chosen because the cases have a hard shell on the outside that protects vital information on the inside.

Due to the unique patented design and functionality, Turtle Cases are recommended by the leading computer tape and media manufacturers including Imation, IBM and StorageTek. Perm-A-Store works daily with the tape manufacturers to determine the most critical problems that could affect the function of any backup tape.

Turtle Cases are designed to protect storage media during storage and transportation from damages from mechanical impacts, temperature and/or humidity extremes, debris from foreign contaminants, airborne debris and electrostatic discharge.

Turtle data storage and transport cases are available for all major storage media formats, in varying capacities.

Turtle data storage and transport cases offer the following features to protect your data:

  Double wall construction
  - Absorbs impact, reducing shock to the tapes
  - Provides insulation from external temperature changes
         - Avoids mechanical loads that would distort the cartridge shape
         - Minimizes the effects of stray magnetic fields by providing a nominal spacing of not            less than 80 mm between the cartridge and the outer surface of the shipping            container

  High density material
  - Special high density polyethylene construction that is very durable but lightweight
  - Will not rust or create sharp edges
         - Extra protection while saving the customer effort and money during transport

  Clean interior
  - Provides sealing to prevent the ingress of dirt and water
  - Prevents condensation

  Individual, format specific slots
  Unique, molded dividers sized to the precise dimensions of each media format cradle   each data media and reduce media damage from shaking and rattling

  Horizontal positioning of tape-reel axes
  Prevents wound tape from sliding down off vertical reel axes due to vibration creating   "stepping" or other signs of uneven winding

  Self locking, double-strong latches
  - Sturdy, safe from springing open
  - Lockable for added security

  Recessed smooth grip handles
  Easy to carry, easy to stack

In addition to these benefits, some cases offer:

  Water-resistant design

  Special carbon resin
  Additional electrostatic dissipation properties to even better protect business critical   data

  Phosphorus material in the handle of the case
  Allows to locate it in the darkness

  Multiple media formats
  Practical solution to store and transport different media formats secure in one case

  Large capacity
  Allows you to handle more Turtle Cases in one large box

Why using Turtle Cases?

Stakes are higher - Value of the media and data has increased significantly due to larger capacities.

Each cartridge or disk now holds significantly more data than in the past and consequently the cost of the business of losing the data is much higher. As an example, a 3480 cartridge holds 200 MB of data while a 3592 cartridge holds 300 GB - 1500 times more!

Requirements are more stringent - The density of the data on all tape formats continues to increase dramatically and therefore damage on the same area, affecting the exact same amount of space on a tape, will result in much greater loss of data.

Legal requirements - New laws demand increased corporate discipline in the area of data security and disaster recovery planning.
