On-prem vs Cloud Archive

There isn’t a wrong choice when it comes to deciding where to archive your content: on-prem or in the cloud? It’s a significant move for every company to decide where to keep their assets.


There are advantages and disadvantages to keeping your assets on prem or in the cloud. Many companies struggle over which solution is best. We believe there are some key questions that will help you decide what’s best for you.


If you’ve spent money on an LTO archive, it makes the most sense to continue with that solution. Introducing a content inventory platform like Reach Engine provides greater visibility and improves the efficiency of your operation.

If you want to establish an archive for the first time, then a cloud archive makes the most sense. This will give you the ability to build in redundancy and have a more consumption based approach for the costs associated with archiving assets.

Levels Beyond and Cloudfirst.io provide a joint solution and an incredibly efficient basis to move into a real-time software defined archive that uses both LTO and the cloud.
