“The only archiving service that could provide me with a 100% guarantee that we could retrieve all the information we archive in 25 years time” - Dan Watkins, Oxford Fertility Unit
‘Managed Service’ means more to us than just ensuring that the service is available. Arkivum’s service constantly monitors the health of the archive, upgrading and migrating as technology advances to ensure that data held within our service is always current and accessible. This means that:
We sell our archiving service through a network of reseller and OEM partners.
Partner with Arkivum and OEM our digital archiving service with your own application or service and give your customers the best of both worlds: our digital preservation expertise and service, backed by your own expertise and industry knowledge.
Arkivum is certified to ISO27001 and is audited on a 6 monthly basis. Combined with the digital preservation best practices (for example ISO standards on Open Archive Information Systems and Trusted Digital Repositories) this means that Arkivum can guarantee the data held within its service – Arkivum’s SLA is backed by worldwide insurance. Arkivum’s certified and auditable approach means the service can enable customers to meet a range of regulatory compliance requirements for records and document retention, including 21CFRPart11, EduraLex Volume 4 Annex 11, and UK specific requirements.
Arkivum is an established provider of data archiving solutions, including the industry leading A-Stor data archiving service, which provides a fully-managed and secure service for long-term data retention with online access and a guarantee of data integrity that’s part of our Service Level Agreement and backed by worldwide insurance.
Our links with University of Southampton IT Innovation Centre means that we have direct access to state-of-the-art research in digital preservation that helps us meet our commitments to our customers. This is complemented by a team at Arkivum that brings strong software skills together with in-depth experience in data centre operations and robust and reliable storage system implementation.
