The Digital Storage Platform You’ve Been Waiting For

Image
No subscriptions. Just $10 per GB.

Monthly subscriptions expire. On Permanent.org, storage fees are only charged once - $10 per gigabyte of storage, as you need it. We invest your contributions into a nonprofit endowment that covers the perpetual cost of storage and supports a nonprofit organization committed to protecting, migrating and maintaining access to your precious digital content.

Image
Your files are insured for the future.
What's the best way to keep something around for all time? Make multiple copies of it and store those copies in different places. We use multiple cloud storage providers, located in multiple different regions, and store on multiple cloud tiers. We run regular checks on your files and, if one appears to be damaged or corrupted, we use its copies to repair it.
Image
Collaborate with control.
Half the fun of preserving your things is doing it together. Add your family members, friends or teammates as Members of your Permanent Archives so that they can build it with you. You choose a Member’s access level and you can add and change permissions or transfer ownership at any time.
Image
Your memories are always accessible.
In order for generations of the future to enjoy your files, they have to be able to open them. We have no idea how file formats will change as time goes on, so we’re planning for it now. We convert your files on upload to a universally standard format so that they can continue to be converted for new technology as time goes on.
