*New DuraCloud Digital **Preservation and **Archiving Services*
*Features and pricing for simple and cost effective preservation and
archiving in the cloud*

*Ithaca, NY* Today the DuraSpace organization announced new DuraCloud (
http://DuraCloud.org <http://duracloud.org/>) subscription plans that offer
three levels of cost effective digital preservation and archiving services
in the cloud. Prices for the new subscription
plans<http://duracloud.org/pricing>are competitive with commercial
cloud providers and do not require
additional transfer or variable costs.

DuraCloud customers of the managed service can now choose between three
plans that offer various solutions for preservation and enterprise use
cases. The *DuraCloud Preservation Basic *subscription is great for
institutions that would like to have two redundant copies of their original
content stored at one cloud data center. For added protection, the *DuraCloud
Preservation Plus* plan is perfect for institutions that wish to have four
redundant copies of their original content stored at two cloud data
centers. The *DuraCloud Enterprise* subscription plan provides a full suite
of configurable DuraCloud features and is ideal for institutions that need
multiple DuraCloud sub-accounts for departments, research groups, cross
institutional projects, or individuals. To ensure preservation of
irreplaceable content DuraCloud now offers automated weekly content health
checks, reporting, file repair  and more.  For more information, including
the full list of features for each plan, please visit
