Storage and archiving services provides management and support for corporate and research data hosting and data protection.
Managing your storage doesn't have to be a problem. Purchased devices may last many years but there will always be a limit in regards to capacity. Storage management can provide for your storage requirements by offering a hassle free long term storage solution. There is a difference between backup and archive. Backup is for the short term and is designed to be recovered quickly. Archiving data is storing for the long term and is meant to store files that are no longer changing or need to be changed.
- Quick recovery (up to two weeks)
- Short term backup (retained for four weeks)
- Medium term backup (retained for twelve months)
- Long term archiving (up to seven years)
