-====== Carbon14 - Frequently Asked Questions ====== 
  
-=== What is Carbon14? === 
- 
-Carbon14 is designed to allow secure data storage in large volumes and for long term data preservation, designed by the electronics laboratory of Online.\\ 
-The TCO of our solution is far more economical than any entry-level hard drive on the market or tape storage, with a much higher level of security and reliability. 
- 
----- 
- 
-=== Which types of volumes of data can I store? === 
- 
-You can store an unlimited amount of data in the Carbon14 cloud!\\ 
-We provide an unlimited number of safe deposit-boxes. \\ 
-Each deposit-box can contain up to four billion files and grow up to 40TB. 
- 
----- 
- 
-=== How does the safe deposit-box work? === 
- 
-The deposit-box is a free temporary disk space, provided to deposit your files.\\ 
-Easily accessible within 7 days by Rsync, FTP, SFTP and SCP, it provides up to 40 TB of storage?\\ 
-After 7 days, or once you have copied your data into the deposit-box, your data will be stored reliable in Carbon14.\\ 
-Data recovery works in the same way, the deposit-box will be restored with the initial data. \\ 
-We keep all attributes of your files (permissions, uid, gid, mtime, ctime, atime, ...) 
- 
----- 
- 
-=== What is an operation? === 
- 
-An operation is an action between the temporary deposit-box and the Carbon14 infrastructure. \\ 
-Archiving, Unarchiving, Destruction or verification. \\ 
-Transactions are billed according to the volume of data to be processed. \\ 
- 
----- 
- 
-=== How much time takes each operation? === 
-An archive operation is done depending on the load on the platform and the the amount of data to archive. \\ 
-This operation is variable and may take several days.\\ 
-Unarchiving is done in priority, with an average duration of 2h, with a recovery speed of 650MB/s. 
- 
----- 
- 
-=== How reliable is Carbon14? === 
- 
-Carbon14 is developed to provide a very high level of security and redundancy.\\ 
-Our standard level of redundancy offers an annual sustainability guaranteeing the loss of less than \\ 
-1 megabyte per terabyte stored for 10 years and only 500 kilobytes with enterprise-level. \\ 
-The durability of your data is covered by a contract and we provide clear guarantees for compensation in case of data loss. \\ 
- 
----- 
- 
-=== How is my data stored? === 
- 
-Each deposit-box is encrypted, replicated and distributed to a minimum of 10 to 44 independent peripheral devices. \\ 
-Our storage algorithm allows the restoration of corrupted or lost data. \\ 
-The infrastructure is hosted in Paris, in our unique anti atomic bunker, built 25 meters deep between two thick\\ 
-Lutetian limestone benches, outside of any natural, technological or military hazard as known for today.  
- 
----- 
- 
-=== What is the security level? === 
- 
-All data in the deposit-box is encrypted by default using the AES-256-CBC algorithm.\\ 
-You are the only one that has the key for the encryption, our staff can't access your data. \\ 
- 
----- 
- 
-=== Which level of certification does Carbon14 provide? === 
- 
-Carbon 14 complies with ISO 27001 standard, Secret Military, \\ 
-PCI-DSS, HDS and the most important insurance certifications (APSAD R7, R13 APSAD, APSAD R81, R82 APSAD). \\ 
-Our product is known and audited by the insurance organizations and makes it eligible to establish an inexpensive and reliable recovery plan. \\ 
-You can securely host medical or financial information through our HDS certification (Hébergeur Données Santé - Health Data Hosting) and PCI-DSS.
