PROTECTING WORLD MEMORY
Arctic World Archive
The Arctic World Archive is a repository of world memory, designed to keep data alive for 1000 years. The combination of resilient long-term storage technology and the remote, safe and cold conditions found on Svalbard, enables data to live on into the distant future.
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.
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.
