Any collection of digital assets that is stored and preserved for future use or reference, often stored on different media than active data (for example, on higher-capacity disk, removable media like tape, or object storage). Archives that store data that will be rarely if ever used (old copies of backup sets, for example) are often called “deep” or “cold” archives and usually need IT action to access files. Archives that hold files designed to be accessed regularly to create new content or to be re-monetized (finished rich media files are an example) are often called “active” or "nearline" archives and may allow users to access files directly.
