I have used it for archiving data much like one would preserve tangible artifacts.
These costs included capital expenditure, staff time and training, as well as scheme management, publicity campaigns, data archiving and reporting.
It is compressed using UNIX TAR archiving and Gzip compression.
Archiving old posts has made me appreciate what a basically good-natured forum this is.
long-term preservation has been identified as a requirement, there are no unified archiving policies at either European or national level.
