Data Archival
Cost Effective, Long-Term Data Retention

Data archival is the process of moving data that is no longer in active use to a separate storage medium for long-term retention. Archive data consists of older data that is still important to the organization and may be needed for future reference, as well as data that must be retained for regulatory compliance. 

Data archives are often confused with data backups. Data backups are an effective component of a disaster recovery plan and everyone needs a reliable backup. Data archives protect older data that is simply not needed for everyday operations but may still be needed from time to time. Data archives serve as a way of reducing primary storage consumption and related costs, rather than acting as a data recovery mechanism. 

Some data archives treat archive data as read-only to protect it from modification, while other data archive solutions treat it as read / write. 

The greatest benefit of archiving data is that it reduces the cost of primary storage. Primary storage is typically the most expensive storage due to performance demands of the storage medium. In contrast, archival storage cost less because it is typically based on lower-performance, high capacity storage devices. Data archival also reduces the volume of data that must be backed up and therefore lowering your backup costs.

Epic-Cloud offers a variety of data archival solutions designed to supplement or replace your current storage with zero capital investment or long-term commitment. Use our storage within our cloud in a Secure or Private Cloud solution or integrate it remotely into your existing servers as part of a Hybrid Cloud solution.
