Norway's Doomsday New vault to preserve valuable data

The doomsday seed vault has got a new neighbor, the Doomsday new vault, opened on March 27, acts as a digital archive for the world’s valuable data.The underground Svalbard Global Seed Vault built in 2008, is about 1,000 kilometers from the North Pole.The frozen storage facility preserves the world’s most valuable crop seeds and acts as a backup for gene banks around the world.

Doomsday new vault location and use:

This new Vault located underground on a remote island in the Arctic Ocean shelters on the same mountain like the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. Officially known as Worlds Artic Archive, it fulfills the same tasks of storing aspects. According to sources, a Norwegian company is leading the new vault project. These trunks act as a storage option for corporations, private individuals, governments, and institutions.

General Vault Working:

After choosing a preservation plan, one hands over data to the service provider, who will then convert it to appropriate standard open source preservation formats. Then, the data is written onto the pixel Film – one can choose the mode of storage between digital (computer-readable) or human-readable – and then stored.

The process of how new vault works:

Even though the vault’s security is high-tech, the medium for the new data archive is analog—photosensitive film. So, digital data gets preserved and written onto this film.
‘Piql’ is a company that converts films from digital to analog. Now, the company uses its analog storage technique to take data preservation for the world.According to documents from Piql, a country can upload test, images or audio-visual content to Piql’s servers.

Bjerkestrand explained that the data which is to be preserved would be sent to the film writers in the same way data forwarded to an office printer, using a secure IT infrastructure (i.e., Internet, VPN, or other data-transfer systems). Once printed, the physical rolls of film, editing is not possible, nor they are at any risk of remote attacks.

This data preservation facility lasts for around 500 to 1000 years. So far, the National Archives of Brazil and Mexico have sent data to store in the underground vault.
Various Countries are being encouraged to submit the data that is particularly significant to their culture.
