Every legacy is reproduced three times and is stored in three locations on three types of media.

 

One of your copies is on a tape in a high security vault de-linked from the cloud.

 

This means if one of the copies are subject to natural disaster, data rot or cyber attacks your legacy is always safe.

3x3x3 Storage

All digital media will suffer data rot and it can start to set in within two years. To fight this, all copies of your legacy are actively monitored for natural decay.

When it is discovered a new copy is produced from the masters so at all time three "data rot" free healthy copies of your legacy are safely maintained.

Stopping Digital Decay

Format obsolescence is the biggest killer of legacies. As technologies become redundant, a legacy can quickly become inaccessible - even in a persons single lifetime. 

The Digital Preservation Trust will support your legacy product hundreds of years into the future -  updating technology so your legacy format is always relevant.

 

This means families will be able to view a digital file regardless of what long forgotten media it was produced on in 2021. 

Format Update
