Active & Cold Storage

DF Studio is cloud storage. Stop worrying about managing external hard drives, NAS Systems, RAID systems or FTP servers. By putting your files into DF Studio you are making a secure backup that’s accessible from anywhere in the world and readily shareable.

Concerned about cost? DF Studio offers two types of cloud storage, Active and Cold. Use Active Storage for files that need to be immediately accessible for download. Or, use cost-effective Cold Storage for infrequently accessed files where a few hours of wait time before use is acceptable to reduce storage costs by over 90%. DF Studio always stores previews of your files so you can continue to use DF Studio’s features such as editing, keywording or obtaining approvals for files stored in Cold Storage.

Both types of storage are ultra-secure and highly redundant. All data is encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256, and is redundantly stored in multiple facilities and on multiple devices within each facility. Additionally, all data undergoes systematic data integrity checks, providing an average annual durability of 99.999999999%.
