Archive vs. Backup

Archive and Backup – Apples and Oranges

Data is the lifeblood of your business. Yet, a common misconception in data management is equating backups with archiving. They serve distinct, equally crucial roles. A backup is for data recovery, while an archive preserves your data securely, categorically, and in a searchable manner for the long haul.

Backup: Essential but Just a Data Repository

A backup is undeniably crucial for any data protection strategy. It creates copies of your current files for restoration in case of data loss or system failure. Backup solutions effectively guard against unexpected data loss from crashes, IT failures, or human errors.

Think of a backup as a safety net in a circus—it catches the trapeze artist if things go awry, but it doesn't improve their trapeze skills.

Archive: Unlocking Your Data's Potential

Unlike backups, which play a passive role, EMA provides an active and dynamic solution. With EMA, your data isn't just stored compliantly; it's also quickly searchable, readily available, and easy to manage. You move beyond mere storage, transforming your data into a vibrant, valuable asset that's always at your fingertips.

A backup without an archive is like a car without a steering wheel—useful in emergencies but not designed for progress. EMA enhances your backups by turning your data into a strategic asset for legal compliance and long-term business success.

Benefits of the EMA Archive

Legal Compliance

EMA meets legal requirements for long-term, authentic storage of business-critical data—a feat traditional backups can't achieve. Compliance is crucial to avoid severe consequences like tax disadvantages or legal repercussions.

Comprehensive Data Loss Protection

EMA securely stores your critical business data, offering an additional layer of protection against system failures, IT issues, and human errors.

Losing your corporate data can pose significant financial risks, far exceeding the cost of an efficient archiving solution. While backups provide snapshots of a point in time, EMA continuously safeguards your data assets.

Boosting Internal Efficiency

Digital archiving with EMA increases transparency in your business operations and optimizes internal processes. EMA also supports specific requirements like deletion concepts, specialized archives, corporate groups, and the four-eyes principle, maintaining your data's integrity.

Cost Savings

How long would it take to retrieve a specific file from your backup? Can your employees do it independently, without involving the help desk?

With EMA, your staff can quickly find and restore needed documents on their own, saving your company time and money.
