ORDO: system information

ORDO is based upon the Figshare platform which uses Amazon AWS, with multiple servers in different locations in Europe. There are daily backups of data stored on Figshare servers; backups are kept for 5 days. Weekly snapshots of the entire data system are taken.

Figshare data storage is integrated with Arkivum, a data archival facility that guarantees 100% data security. There is more information on the Arkivum site.
