Cloud Archive de Public Cloud

Long-term storage to securely archive your data

Whether it’s for achieving business goals or meeting legal obligations, long-term data retention is often a necessity. Two points are important here: the cost of storage, which must be reduced, and data security and recovery, which must be guaranteed. OVH's Cloud Archive solution has been designed with this in mind.

Secure and reliable

Your archived data is treated with the greatest of care. Each file is fragmented and replicated on a redundant infrastructure, with each fragment then written on a different storage device, and a system in place to constantly ensure the integrity of the information. If a missing fragment is ever detected, it is automatically reconstructed by a specific algorithm, using the other parts of the file.

Reversible, based on industry standards

OVH places great importance on the freedom of its users. When you entrust us with your data, we guarantee you will always be able to recover it via standard, easy-to-use protocols, such as SCP or rsync.

Reduced costs

Storage clusters that host Cloud Archive are designed to secure your information at the best possible price. The architecture offers data recovery time ranging from 10 minutes to 12 hours, depending on the last access date.

Use cases

Log archiving

For legal, archival or statistical purposes, the preservation of logs is an important process, and requires special attention. Conventional systems rarely keep this information for more than a few days, or a few weeks at best. By storing your logs data in the Cloud Archive, you will be free to keep it for as long as you want.

Backups

There are many daily backup systems used in modern architectures. Whether it is for operating system backups or application backups, they typically use proven, secure protocols, such as SCP or rsync.

Replacement of magnetic bands

Archiving on magnetic bands has been the industry standard for many years, thanks to its low cost. Today, Cloud Archive replaces these old backups, meeting the same data conservation requirements, while providing much more flexibility, at a very competitive cost.

Features

Swift API

The storage solution used in Cloud Archive clusters is OpenStack Swift. This is a standard API that can be used directly by conventional tools.

SSH-based protocols

In addition to access via the Swift API, you can use your favoured tools, such as SFTP, SCP and rsync, for data transfer.

No size limit for files

Cloud Archive allows you to store important files of many TBs, without any size limit.

Checksum

File metadata in the Cloud Archive automatically incorporates an MD5 signature, to ensure the integrity of a transferred element.

Archive expiration dates

Archives can have an expiration date as an attribute. In such cases, they will simply be deleted after that date.
