Long-Term Data and File Retention
Federal and state laws and multiple industries require corporations to store computer files for many years. Different data types are required to be kept for different periods of time – financial records must be kept for 3 years, tax documents for 7, and employee exposure to dangerous chemical records must be retained forever.
Keeping this data on-site and co-located with the primary data takes up valuable space and resources, and invites catastrophic data loss in the event of a disaster. You need to get your backups offsite to a location specifically designed for cost-effective, secure retention that meets legal and compliance requirements. Unitrends long-term data retention solutions are easier to deploy and provide higher confidence that data is available with quick and easy recovery. Long-term backups can also be used for instant recovery in the case of disasters.
There are several ways to retain data for the long term depending on your volume, the required speed of recovery, how many sites you have, and budget. Unitrends backup solutions work with single site, multi-site, and cloud-based retention strategies.
