What is archiving

1. Archiving

Archive definition

The archive is a collection of data (conversations) moved to storage for backup, to keep separate for compliance reasons or for moving off primary storage location. It is usually a list of files or conversations under a directory or catalog structure.


Archive vs. Backup

Archive and backup are very similar, but they have some distinct differences.

Backups are copies of data stored with the idea of recovery in the case of corruption. In backup copies are typically created using replication and updates as a file change.

Archived data is not a copy of data but reasonably altered data that needs to be retained for an extended period.
