What’s the different between data backups and archives?

One of the most common questions that come up again and again in data backup and recovery is “What’s the different between data backups and archives? Data archives are often confused with data backups. Data backups are used to restore data in case it is lost, corrupted or destroyed. In contrast, data archives protect older information that is not needed for everyday business operations but may occasionally need to be accessed.

Data archiving as “a single or a collection of historical records specifically selected for long-term retention and future reference.” In addition, data archives consist of older data that is still important and necessary for future reference, as well as data that must be retained for regulatory compliance. Data archives are also indexed and have search capabilities so that files and parts of files can be easily located and retrieved.

Quick Benefits for Digital Archiving

  • Provides continuity in the event of a disaster
  • Protects records from inappropriate and unauthorized access
  • Allows quicker retrieval of documents and information from files
