Offsite/long-term log storage

By 25th July 2014No Comments

We provide a service for long term long storage, stored remotely from your server. This may be a necessity for your PCI compliance regulations (it is common to have to store at least 90 days log files for auditing).

This service is sold as a capacity (eg. 50GB) rather than duration, as the size of log files will vary depending on your traffic levels. As a result, it can make it difficult to predict the storage requirements exactly to match a given duration.

When off-site log storage has been requested, we rotate a copy of your local logs on to a remote machine every day, this process is repeated up until the point where your off-site storage has been saturated. At this point, older logs will be automatically deleted to make space for new backups.
