Microfilm and Microfiche Storage
Microfilm and microfiche storage saves data by shrinking documents and storing them on photographic film. Microfilm uses a roll of film, while microfiche is a flat sheet of microfilm. A roll of microfilm can store 2,400 letter-sized pages per roll and a 4”x 5” microfiche sheet can store about 98 letter-sized pages, creating a space-efficient storage system.
When handled properly, microfilm can last 500 years. Its long-term durability makes microfilm the ideal preservation medium. You can rest assured that your information will be saved for decades, if not much longer. It is also very easy to convert your documents to digital images with microfilm scanning.
Tape Storage Solutions
Tape storage saves your data on magnetic tape. Similar to microfilm, tape has a low unit cost and long archival stability. It is an excellent storage option because tapes can be used to restore lost data or an entire system if needed.
It takes longer to create backups, transfer, and move files with tape storage; but is not vulnerable to hacking, viruses, and other digital hazards. The durability and affordability make tape storage a practical solution for businesses.
