Case study

UK National Archives

UK National Archives’ collection is one of the largest in the world, with 11 million records, from the Domesday Book and the Magna Carta to modern government papers.

It has been managing paper documents since it was founded in 1838, but the advent of digital technology has created a whole new challenge – that of storing and preserving digital records. To meet this challenge, The National Archives has developed a new storage and preservation system, built in partnership with Preservica, that not only allows it to efficiently store, manage and, where necessary, migrate its current collection of digital files, but also provides the headroom to significantly expand its electronic archive
