The long-term storage of archival media requires an environment that preserves data while also protecting that data from theft and disaster. Additionally, organizations have a legal and regulatory obligation to produce data contained on media tapes and hard drives. Unfortunately, magnetic media is extremely sensitive to temperature and humidity changes. As a result, archival media recalled for litigation or auditing purposes may contain corrupted data.

Sugar House Archives & Shred has implemented facilities and systems to ensure the long-term preservation and protection of our clients’ archival data. Our data protection facility is a 4-hour rated media vault specially designed to protect and preserve backup media. Enhanced security systems provide continuous monitoring for our vault. A combination of access control, intrusion alarms, and digital video surveillance systems provide security and peace of mind.


Because the slightest temperature and humidity fluctuations can damage archival media, we provide continuous, around-the-clock environmental monitoring of our vault facilities. Temperature and humidity controls based on ANSI standards ensure the long-term preservation of magnetic and optical media so that, in the event of an emergency restore or audit, you are ensured the integrity and reliability of your data. Racking systems within our vault allow for the slotting of both containerized and individually slotted media while high density storage shelving prevents your media from being exposed to light and dust.


Since traditional water sprinklers can damage archival media, we have installed a Halon fire suppression system specifically designed to protect media. When engaged, this gas-based fire suppression agent does not leave any residue that could compromise your data. It is the highest form of fire protection you can achieve for your archival digital assets.


Sugar House Archives & Shred’s inventory control system allows for the secure tracking of your data within our vault. A secure web interface allows you to manage your archival inventory, sending media off-site and recalling specific volumes. Your archival inventory is available to you 24/7. In the event of a disaster, a Sugar House Archives & Shred professional courier will deliver your archival media to your business or hot site in a secure vehicle.
