Apple Valley Document & Media Storage now offers the most secure facility for offsite data storage services to clients in the California High Desert region, with a true data-rated FIRELOCK® vault. This ultra-secure facility helps clients meet their legal responsibilities to protect their mission critical information and prevent catastrophic financial loss.

Apple Valley, CA Jan 18, 2011 –/PRWEB/– A new and vital service is now available to corporations, hospitals and other organizations in the San Bernardino County area and beyond, with the most secure data storage facility in the region. Apple Valley Document & Media Storage has invested in a fireproof and climate controlled vault, capable of protecting the backup data their clients must preserve to comply with their legal requirements and prevent catastrophic financial loss. Now the High Desert region can enjoy the same level of security that was previously only available in larger metropolitan areas across the country.

According to Jeanie Miller, President of Apple Valley Document & Media Storage, “Offering our customers storage in our FIRELOCK® fireproof vault is a natural extension to our existing service offerings. We already handle customers’ confidential documents, X-rays and other valuable materials, so to store their backup tapes and other media fits in perfectly with the services our customers need.”

The specially designed and constructed vault at Apple Valley’s facility is capable of keeping the interior temperature below 125-degrees F. for at least three hours, even if exterior temperatures reach 2,000-degrees F.! Maintaining temperatures below this 125-degree threshold is critical, because that is the point at which information stored on computer tapes and other sensitive media is lost. This Class 125 Three Hour classification is by far the highest fire protection rating available in the region. According to Todd Smith of FIRELOCK® Fireproof Modular Vaults: “Apple Valley Document & Media Storage’s decision to invest in a true data-rated vault shows their dedication to protecting their clients’ valuable information assets.” A clean agent fire suppression system inside the vault has been installed to guard against the threat of a fire starting inside the vault chamber. The vault is rated at the Zone IV Seismic level (the highest earthquake resistance rating on the scale), as is the racking and surrounding building.

Some of Apple Valley Document & Media Storage’s other services include: Document Storage, Media Conversion (Film, Fiche, Paper, Maps/Plats, Aperture Cards, etc.), X-ray Storage, Disaster Backup and Recovery Services, and Server Co-Location Services.

Apple Valley Document & Media Storage employs a barcode-based media management system to keep track of all the materials they safeguard for their clients. Whether the data tapes are kept in closed containers or stored as individual tapes in specialized media storage units, each container or tape is barcoded and tracked so their location is always known and documented. It is critical to maintain the chain of custody of data storage media, since the proper care and handling of backup data must be proven if the information is needed for litigation support. This media management system also allows clients to access their onsite and offsite media inventory at any time with the online client module. Not only does this help clients manage their media inventory, the Apple Valley team will work with you to set up an automated tape rotation schedule. The client module lets clients know which tapes are due to be used for backups and which tapes will be returned in the next pickup/delivery service. All of this functionality creates a much more secure and efficient way to keep track of both active backup media and archival media, while maintaining a documented chain of custody.

Another important feature of Apple Valley’s facility is the precise climate control system that regulates the temperature and relative humidity with the FIRELOCK® vault. Magnetic media can lose information, especially archival data in long-term storage, if the storage environment is not properly maintained. The dedicated HVAC system at Apple Valley Document & Media Storage is capable of keeping the temperature between 68-72-degrees F. and relative humidity between 30-40%, which is the optimum climate for magnetic media and other environmentally-sensitive assets. The R-33 insulation value of the FIRELOCK® vault helps maintain this stable environment.

The physical security of the Apple Valley Document & Media Storage facility is yet another feature of this advanced facility. An extensive security camera system with infrared capability monitors all activity in strategic locations around the building. An alarm system guards against unauthorized access at the perimeter and other sensitive areas of the building, while electronic access controls keep track of the activity of authorized personnel inside the facility.

This technologically advanced facility is run by a dedicated and highly-trained staff that is ready to help clients meet their legal requirements to maintain and protect their mission critical information. As information protection mandates such as HIPAA, Rule 26 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Sarbanes-Oxley and others become more and more pervasive, it’s fortunate that the High Desert region now has a local service provider capable of helping clients meet those requirements.
