Posted by admin on Dec 13, 2011 1:47:18 PM

Archive writing in Ontario is a service that preserves your digital records by making an analogue copy. This analogue copy is technology independent and can be used well into the future. With archive writing, you won’t risk technological obsolescence or the unnecessary costs of storing paper well into the future.

Instead, you’ll have a secure and reliable backup of all your documents and records. This form of backup is a critical component of any disaster recovery plan. Archive writing in Ontario provides many additional benefits as well.

But before we delve into the benefits, it’s important to understand what format archive writing in Ontario typically takes.

Archive Writing in Ontario and Microfilming

Generally, archive writing involves backing up media onto microfilm. When microfilm is used for either digital or paper documents, the information can be read without the use of any special hardware or software. Instead, anyone can read a microfilm document with just the naked eye.

Many people may think of microfilming as an old form of technology and “on its way out.” But today’s trends don’t support this perception. In fact, paper has been around for over 2000 years and we still use it pervasively today.

Microfilm has been used for more than 100 years and it still has value in disaster recovery applications today. No other forms of media have the staying power of microfilm.

Although a company may make ample use of digital technologies, microfilming provides a safety net to all forms of information. Critical company information can be duplicated and stored in multiple locations. In fact, government agencies, insurance companies and even many human resource departments incorporate microfilming into their document practices and regard it as an essential practice.

In part two of this series, we will discuss why it is important to use archive writing. For more information on archive writing, continue reading our blog or contact MES Hybrid today.
