Backup and Disaster Recovery
ImageVault® is ‘backed up’ every 2 hours at our New York facility, to guard against any loss of data. In addition, a second backup is then generated and sent to our Boston facility to ensure instant recovery in the event of a disaster.
ImageVault® reduces client costs, by archiving all past and present images. There is no need to deploy an ‘on site’ archiving system, when all current and archived assets are accessible from one point of access.
Clients can customize data fields into templates for organizing and tracking specific data. Fields can include infomation such as job numbers, copyright/usage information, photographer, artist, etc. Metadata can be either downloaded or uploaded for use in job tracking or accounting applications.
