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.
