The data kept in the Leibniz Universität Hannover archive system will be migrated to a new hardware and software platform. The migration phase began on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 2pm. From that point in time, access to the archive system will be unavailable.The migration phase is expected to last for at least three weeks. In case you need urgent access to your data stored in the archive system, please contact the archive team at LUIS.


We will keep you informed of ongoing work throughout the maintenance window.


If you have any questions regarding this migration, please contact the archive team.


Update December 3rd, 2018: Migration work is ongoing, but there has been a slight delay. Currently, we expect the archive system at LUIS to resume normal operation on December 13th, 2018.


The Archive System at LUIS offers long term storage for a subset of your data. As of 2015, the retention time for data is at least 10 years, which makes this service ideal to keep safe important research data and results of your work. You can upload files (or sets of files) to your archive account, where it will then be stored in multiple copies.

How does it benefit my work?

By using the archive system, you can enjoy the benefits of magnetic tape based longterm storage:

  • LUIS ensures that data can be retrieved, even years after being deposited.
  • Currently, the time of retention for your data is at least 10 years.
  • The archive system ensures two copies are made, each to individual tape media.
  • May be used to keep data as per requirement of certain research grants.
