What is Deep Freeze?
Zoolz Deep Freeze™ is the latest technological breakthrough from Zoolz Cloud Backup, created to offer large amounts of storage at the lowest possible prices. Deep Freeze is made possible via Amazon’s S3 Glacier technology. Zoolz, through its collective decade-long experience in Cloud backup, has adapted and configured the technology even further to provide the best possible experience and service for its customers, meaning there are no additional configuration costs or hidden fees when using Zoolz Deep Freeze™.
Deep Freeze is perfect for businesses and individuals who need to store large amounts of data but don’t feel pressured to instantly access data when it’s required. Deep Freeze utilizes “Cold Storage” technology, meaning that users will be able to access data within hours* of requesting it (but not immediately). This makes it perfectly situated for organizations and people who want to keep data for archival or long-term purposes.
It is available for both businesses and individuals from one terabyte, all the way up to 200+. These plans offer unlimited users, servers, and external drives, as well as file versioning and backup on AWS.
Deep freeze vs Cold Storage
Zoolz Deep Freeze™ and traditional Cold Storage utilize the same basic concept: storing large amounts of storage that users don’t need to frequently and immediately access. Instead, these technologies store data for longer-term purposes, and in return offer much cheaper prices.
Cold Storage technologies will often take a few hours for requested files to be accessible. Deep Freeze storage will take 3-12 hours, but offers much cheaper prices in return. Both technologies are perfectly adapted to the convenience of users who need to store rarely-accessed data.
Who should use Deep Freeze
Zoolz Deep Freeze™ archival storage is an invaluable asset for those who need to store large amounts of data at the lowest possible prices. It’s appropriate for users who have small or large amounts of infrequently accessed data that they can afford to wait five to ten hours before accessing.
Some perfect example uses are:
- Businesses that are legally required to store data for compliance purposes.
- Individuals and organizations storing data for archival reasons.
- Storing files long-term that you intend to use as primarily back-up.
It offers top military-grade security, unlimited users, servers, and external drives, file versioning, and backup on AWS. Zoolz Deep Freeze™ is available for users seeking to store data anywhere from 1 TB to 200+.
