Frequently Asked questions
- How does your system deal with data retention policies?
LIMA Data Retention will store data for a predefined period. In many cases data must be retained for a certain period of time but also needs to be deleted immediately when this period expires. LIMA Data Retention includes functions that automatically expires and deletes data, so no data can be retrieved outside the allowed retention period.
- Can your solution be used for disclosing information only?
Yes. The storage and data disclosure systems are decoupled. If the data storage is in place, but there is a need for disclosing information only, we can provide our disclosure platform.
- How flexible is the solution in terms of sizing and scalability?
The solution is based on Apache Cassandra nodes. If more storage is required we can add more nodes and configure them to be part of the storage.
- Does the solution require on-prem hardware, or can it be cloud based?
The Apache Cassandra nodes can be deployed at prem or in a public cloud environment like Amazon AWS which is supported. It makes us of the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) feature. To ensure a high level of fault tolerance three Availability zones are required for the deployment of the Apache Cassandra nodes. When geo-redundancy is required cross-region VPC peering will need to be set-up to ensure the connection between two Amazon Virtual Private Cloud environments.
- Which file types are supported?
The solution is data agnostic. Meaning we can handle any file format. It’s like your own computer. You’ll be able store any file type, but you will need a specific application to open it.
- Does your system have data tampering protection?
Yes. Tamper detection prevents the data to be changed or deleted once it is stored in LIMA Data Retention. This is achieved by hashing all content records. The SHA-256 hashes on the content records are verified during data retrieval; this prevents against unauthorized changes of individual records.
