What is archiving?
Data archiving is the task of identifying and moving data that is no longer actively used to a separate storage system for long-term retention. Archived data is typically information that is important to the organization or must be retained for legal reasons or for compliance with regulatory frameworks.

What is data archiving versus data backup?
While both data archiving and data backup are forms of data protection that involve use of secondary storage on less-expensive storage media, the two processes have different purposes. Data backup provides copies of active data that can be used to restore information in the event of corruption, loss, theft or compromise. Data archiving is intended for long-term retention of information that is no longer active, but which must be kept for historic, legal or compliance purposes.
