Off-Site Data Storage

The HAVs – High Availability Vault

When you move your corporate data assets offsite for storage, do you want them stored in a warehouse or in a steel and concrete encased bank vault? S2|Data believes that secure storage should be just that, and warehouse storage just isn’t good enough!

S2|DATA has two high security, former bank vaults in Atlanta, GA situated on a 3-acre razor wire protected campus in extremely close proximity to fire and police protection.  Security isn’t just a buzzword, it is literally built into the foundation of our facilities.

As a forensic and data restoration company that serves the legal and compliance market space, often discovering data for use in litigation cases there were common processes that occurred:

  • The Legal team requests the investigation of data 
  • IT Operations instructs their off-site service provider to collect the required media 
  • The media is transported to S2|DATA, where upon receipt a chain of custody documentation is reconciled against a pick list 
  • S2|DATA performs the restoration & discovery work 
  • Upon completion the process goes into reverse 

The client was often subject to the following problems:

  • Depending upon quantity of media it sometimes took weeks to get to the S2|Data lab for work
  • The media list sometimes didn’t reconcile with the pick list provided
  • Transportation provided further risk of data theft, delay or even loss

To many of our clients the solution to reducing these risks was obvious: vault these data assets with S2|DATA! Knowing there was a possibility of further discoveries in the future, removing the risk associated with transportation, logistics, storage and production was a top priority.  S2|Data’s High Availability Vault provides the means of storage and production of data in one location.
