Managing the information lifecycle is vital to the functional health of any organization. From creation to use to disposition, every step of the information lifecycle requires planning and processes to ensure order and prevent chaos. The primary tool in digital and physical information life-cycle management is a records retention schedule. At the most fundamental level a retention schedule dictates how long to keep documents according to the state, federal and industrial regulations that apply to your organization. While a functioning records retention policy is a crucial element of compliance, it also enables your organization to manage the information life-cycle completely and efficiently. The Iron Mountain Information Governance Policy Center solution is a user-friendly, online platform to help you keep your retention schedule up to date. A records retention schedule is a policy document that defines an organization’s legal and compliance record keeping requirements.

To solve these challenges for our customers Iron Mountain developed a cloud storage service designed to protect, preserve and store data for the long term.

Iron Mountain Cloud Archive is a secure repository for almost any type of data that you need to preserve, whether for compliance, conservation or value-creation. Designed to scale as your content grows, it is trusted by organizations of all types that want offsite, pay-as-you-use archival cloud storage with enterprise-class SLAs, stringent security protocols as well as near-infinite scalability — where data remains intact and easily accessible.

Iron Mountain Cloud Data Replication is a cost effective, fully managed cloud—based data replication target to an Iron Mountain secure data center. This solution utilizes secure, high speed and reliable connectivity to replicate data off-site so it is protected, yet available for fast and efficient recovery, while reducing costs associated with legacy backup systems.

Cloud Data Replication disk-based backup enables faster recovery, where you start your process at a recovery point that is near real-time — helping to meet tighter RPO and RTO requirements for critical business applications and data. Backing up to the cloud provides a pricing structure tied to the data volume being protected, so you get a predictable operating expense subscription, and it’s scalable allowing you to expand without incurring the capital expense to do so. Also, you’ll be able to eliminate your on-site tape infrastructure yet still take advantage of the cost savings attributed to tape for archiving purposes.
