White Paper – Can You Use The Cloud for Long Term Data Preservation?

Most organizations have a subset of data they need to preserve. Preservation is different than archiving. Preservation means that the data can’t be changed, must always be readable and the organization needs to know who is accessing it. Often there is also a need to specifically get rid of that data after a certain date.

Data preservation requires two components; software to manage the preservation process and secure, scalable storage. The problem for most organizations is finding a location to store preserved data. Iron Mountain and services like it have been the go-to preservation solution. But now organizations are looking to public cloud storage services to store data they need to preserve.

The problem is the cloud creates its own sets of concerns in terms of security, audit trail and confirmed deletion. In our white paper “How to Use the Cloud for Long Term Data Preservation” we cover the requirements of data preservation and compare cloud storage to more traditional services to see if the cloud can meet the challenges of data preservation.
