Arctic World Archive

The Arctic World Archive is an offline data vault ensuring the most sensitive and irreplaceable data to be safeguarded for the future. Located in a disaster-proof vault inside an arctic mountain on the Svalbard archipelago, the information is kept in permafrost conditions far away from political and physical instabilities in the rest of the world. The Arctic World Archive safeguards the globe’s most valuable data from future catastrophes, wars and cyberattacks as well as solving the challenges of future technology obsolescence. The Artic World Archive can protect any kind of digital information, photos, documents, databases or audiovisual content.
