Archive is single point of storing data which can be restored over a period of time say from a year or so to a decade or more. Archive of data on Harddisk are susceptible to read/write issues over a period of time and reliability. Comes LTO Tape format which is reliable and cost effective than Harddisk based storage.
We provide archive for films and films we done Archive as follows:

Why LTO: via (http://www.lto.org/solutions/why-lto/)
The LTO Ultrium format is the preferred tape solution, brought to you by some of the most respected names in the storage industry. It’s an “open” format, which allows for compatible offerings from multiple vendors. It’s scalable, providing a broad range of system applications where high capacity, high transfer rates and high reliability is important. There’s also a well-defined technology roadmap, so you know that it’s a technology that you can rely on both today and in the future.
THE TAPE ADVANTAGE
Tape remains unrivaled in terms of cost for capacity, reliability, portability and security, and it continues to play a crucial role in data protection. Tape can also complement a disk-based storage system by providing an offline or backup option. This means that your data can remain protected in the event of malware or a data security breach.
The latest generation of LTO technology provides up to 6.25 Terabytes of compressed storage per cassette, which is larger than most competing technologies. It also holds 2.5 Terabytes of non-compressed data, meaning that you can store hours of raw HD video on just one tape.
While cost per gigabyte for both tape and disk continue to shrink, tape maintains its advantage over disk when the overall total cost of ownership – energy, floor space and equipment – is taken into account. The cost of an LTO tape translates into roughly 1.3 cents per gigabyte, which is much less expensive than any comparable disk solution.*
LTO technology is an “open” format, meaning that many different competing companies are producing LTO drives and LTO cartridges that are compatible with each other. Each generation is also compatible with the two previous generations, so you know that you’ll be able to make the most of your investment as technology needs change.
Tape is one of the most reliable solutions available. In fact, LTO technology delivers a better bit error rate than disk, so you can have the confidence that your data is there when you need it.
The latest generation of LTO drives can maintain a compressed data transfer rate of up to 400MB/second, which means that it can handle some of the most demanding applications.
Tapes are robust and far less fragile than a hard drive, so they can be easily – and inexpensively – transported. And with LTFS, you can store (or archive) large files across many different hardware and software platforms.
LTO tapes can be stored offline, so they’re not susceptible to attacks that can affect online storage like a virus or software error. Tape is also a great way to backup files that are stored on disk and in the cloud, providing a cost-effective way to have multiple copies of your most important files.
Whether it’s a secondary copy of valuable data that’s already stored on another medium or providing another level of offline assurance to a disk-to-disk system, LTO tape delivers a cost-effective means for restoring your data quickly.
CAPTURE AND OFFLOAD
Storage media rarely is a one-size-fits-all solution. For applications where more expensive media – such as solid-state disk – is used to capture initial content or data, LTO tape is a perfection solution for offload and retention, such as video production or oil/exploration data aggregation.
HIGH CAPACITY TRANSFER
Even with some of the fastest connections, transferring Terabytes of data to the cloud or a remote data center can take days and tax your network resources. A shipment of an LTO tape can not only get the data there faster in some cases, but it also provides a backup to the original.
LONG-TERM ARCHIVE & OFFLINE STORAGE
Sometimes you don’t need data readily available, but it might need to be accessed at a later time. LTO Ultrium tape storage can provide for years of protection at a cost much lower than other storage solutions.
Sometimes files need to be in an intermediate state between online storage (very rapid access to data) and offline storage (infrequent access to data) called nearline storage. With high data transfer speeds, low cost and high capacity, LTO tape is perfect for managing nearline data and bringing it online very rapidly when required.
IT’S AS EASY AS DRAG AND DROP
With LTFS, accessing data stored on an LTO Ultrium tape cartridge is as easy and intuitive as using a USB flash drive.
