  • Ability to create an affordable mix of physical media and cloud solutions
  • An auditable record of each point of contact, time of contact and signature receipts

  • Temperature and humidity controls in storage areas for back-up media
  • FM-200 Fire Suppression to prevent media damage from fire or water
