Backing up Data
The data protection services include backup and archiving of data. When backing up, you create a copy of your current data. The copy serves as data protection in case of accidental deletion or hardware failure.
Archiving of Data
Archiving offers the possibility to secure data in the long term. After archival you remove your data from disk which frees up space locally as well as on backup. Data in archives always exist twice: an original and a redundant. At the SCC, the data on magnetic tape is saved in several different tape libraries.
