ColdStorage For NAK.Backup System

What is Cold Storage?

Cold Storage is for long term data retention, this data typically will not be required for active use and might not be needed for months, years, decades, or maybe never. Practical examples of data suitable for cold storage include; records needed to be maintained for financial, legal, HR, or other business record keeping requirements, or anything else that’s of value but not needed anytime soon.

Why does it take so long to get my files?

It can take upto 5 business days to recover files
Our Cold Storage system utlizes LTO tapes which have to be physically loaded, this protects the tape from modifications, damage, theft. As a result this process can take some time, this is including having the tape(s) couriered to our offices.

Security thru Non Connection

Since NAK.ColdStorage only support NAK.Local devices and each device connects only via VPN technology, NAK.ClodStorage has no direct connection to the internet, which allows for no "brute force" attacks to our servers.

Our System Administrators can take every error log entry with the highest level of seriousness. As an example, email servers get over 1000 failed login attempts per hour (over a 3 month period), which makes looking into each entry impractical.
