takes a unique approach to data archive -- it offers permanent storage. Unlike other services, iForem charges the user once per file for the life of the file. This approach may seem odd at first, but when you think of the use case of storing very important documents for the life of the business or at least the retention period of that document, it begins to make sense. Instead of having to renew the service every month or every year, the cost to store the data is assessed one time for the life of the file.
In addition to the permanent storage option, iForem also offers standard monthly plans that provide more storage and full service. All of this storage is designed to meet the archive and retention needs of small businesses. You can designate files with a set retention model, so, for example, you can keep a document for seven years and then have it deleted and you can select and move files into the permanent classification for a single charge.
IForem also offers an Escrow Service
, which allows for small software developers to offer a free escrow service that they only pay for when they have a customer that requests they escrow the code. This is dramatically less expensive than the services of larger companies.
