To ensure preservation of irreplaceable content DuraCloud now offers automated weekly content health checks, reporting, file repair  and more...  or archiving digital library materials and research output from academic institutions, museums, government organizations and professional organizations DuraCloud is the only managed software service that archives content across more than one cloud provider so that documents, imagery and videos are always accessible.
