YKP Systems Active Arcive is continually expanding our list of certified cloud storage vendors. You own your data and you control your storage destiny. If you want to switch from cloud storage vendor A to vendor B, you simply add the login credentials for the new cloud storage and mark it as active. All new archives will be sent to the new cloud storage vendor.

Each software appliance has one active cloud storage vendor. You can have one server archive data to one cloud and another server archive data to a completely different vendor. This flexibility makes it easy to support geographically based storage restrictions or regulations.

One of the major benefits of YKP Systems Active Archive software is the top-down policy driven approach. All you need to do is make the policy change at the desired highest level and all children will inherit the policy settings. As example, if you want to change the long-term data retention from 7 to 8 years, you simply make the change at the top policy, save, and you are done. Each appliance and client will automatically receive policy changes with no additional action on your part.
