Secure vault storage

Arctic World Archive

For data that deserves ultra-secure storage.



Your data is stored offline and out of reach of cyber-attacks, in a disaster-proof vault in one of the most geopolitically secure places in the world, the Arctic Archipelago of Svalbard.

Environmentally friendly

No electricity or other human intervention is needed as the climatic conditions in the Arctic are ideal for long-term archival of film.


By using a self-contained and technology-independent storage medium, future generations will be able to read back the information.
