Cold Storage

Cold storage refers to a type of storage designed for data that is accessed infrequently or archived for long-term retention. It is typically used for data that does not require frequent access but must be retained for compliance, regulatory, or historical purposes.

Cold storage solutions offer cost-effective storage options for storing large volumes of data over extended periods. Compared to hot storage, which prioritizes fast access times and is often used for frequently accessed data, cold storage sacrifices speed for lower costs.

Cold storage is ideal for storing backups, historical data, archives, and regulatory compliance data. It allows organizations to reduce storage costs by leveraging lower-cost storage tiers while still maintaining accessibility and durability for archived data when needed.
