Malicious hacking, bit red and data corruption – the challenges field of digital data backup are enormous. As can be guaranteed on our digital heritage is a long-term access? The Norwegian company Piql found the answer through the reuse of well-known storage medium



the world, there is concern about the lack of technologies that are really suitable for long-term preservation of digital data . Magnetic media are short-lived and are best used only for backups, whereas the cloud is inappropriate because of security and privacy problems for this purpose. 5% [1] of the digital data in the world must be archived well over the long term.

In this context, it is imperative to ensure that the data can not be modified or deleted, “says Rune Bjerkestrand, Managing Director of Piql AS. A legitimate data preservation solution must be independent of the availability of specific technologies or vendors also ensure future access

Instructions for retrieving the data in the future are written in the form of a readable text on the film.
