PermaFicheTM technology provides the potential for truly long-term storage of information via the metal media on which the information is stored in analog format. Organizations and agencies engaged in the archival and preservation of information typically collect and store records in the form of Books, Microfilm, Data files, Digital images etc. All of the above mentioned types of collection are stored on media that is organic in nature and suffers from various types of deterioration. Papers, Microfilm, Magnetic tapes, Optical disks etc, all have a natural shelf life. Some are longer than others and are dependent on the material used, as well as the temperature and humidity in which they are stored. Additionally some are dependent on hardware and software to interpret them.
