Cloud Storage Vendor Profiles

Part of our Feet on The Ground: A Practical Approach to The Cloud series, these profiles break down the offerings of third party cloud storage providers from a preservation point of view. Assessment points include Data Management, Reporting/Metadata, Redundancy, Accessibility, Security, End of Service, and adherence to the NDSA’s Levels of Preservation. Current offerings include Chronopolis, EVault, Amazon Glacier, Dternity (formerly Permivault), DuraCloud, Preservica, Rackspace Cloud Files, and Amazon S3. Profiles will continue to be added and will be updated as the market and services change.
