BACKUP OR ARCHIVE: THERE’S A DIFFERENCE
Archive and backup are words that can be commonly interchanged, but in storage they’re actually very distinct processes with different objectives.
An archive is a primary copy of files that aren’t needed immediately. They’re typically stored on a less-expensive, highly-reliable and durable medium so that the original storage device can be reused. Typical applications include retaining permanent records – such as compliance – and data management. Content, such as music and video, is also typically archived for later use. Archives are rarely overwritten.
A backup is a secondary copy of original data. It’s primarily used to restore data in the event of an emergency, such as a disk failure or disaster recovery. Backups are typically overwritten with new data at a later time, allowing for reuse.
