NOW AVAILABLE: Lower per Terabyte Cost for Additional ArchivesDirect Storage

Winchester, MA There will always be more, not less, data. That fact makes it likely that you will need more archival storage space than you originally planned for. Rapid, on-the-fly collection development, unexpected, gifted digital materials and rich media often require additional storage. ArchivesDirect has lowered the per terabyte cost of additional storage to make using the service more cost effective for organizations and institutions seeking to meet institutional demands for ensuring that their digital footprint is safe and accessible for future generations.

The ArchivesDirect hosted service combines Artefactual Systems’ digital preservation expertise and Archivematica workflows plus dependable storage in DuraCloud. Additional terabytes of storage above the 1 terabyte included in the ArchivesDirect standard plan were previously priced at $1,000/TB. That price has been lowered to $825/TB (which includes one copy of material stored in Amazon S3 and another copy stored in Amazon Glacier).
