When using Logit.io, you have the capability to archive your data to your Amazon S3 cold storage or to cold storage on Logit.io. This functionality is useful for organizations looking to efficiently manage their log and event data while ensuring long-term accessibility and compliance.
Cold storage is an ideal solution for handling data that you need to retain for compliance, historical analysis, or backup purposes, but which is not frequently accessed. This is a cost-effective storage option that helps you save on storage costs when compared to keeping all your data “hot” within a hosted service.
As many industries and regulatory frameworks require organizations to maintain logs and event data for extended periods. Archiving data to S3 cold storage ensures that your organization can comply with these requirements without incurring high storage costs. It also provides peace of mind, knowing that your data is safely stored and readily available when needed for auditing or compliance purposes.
To get started with sending your data to S3 from Logit.io you will need to reach out to support via our live chat, from here we will be able to assist you with your cold storage needs.
Logit.io also offers the flexibility of restoring your archived data to any of your Logit.io stacks. This is particularly useful for organizations with multiple environments, such as development, staging, and production stacks.
Logit.io offers a straightforward solution for cold data restoration within your stack, with manual support provided during investigations and audits. Our support team can assist in efficiently managing the process, ensuring the seamless retrieval of archived data as needed.
