Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Differences Between C14 Cold Storage and C14 Classic?

First what’s common. The two services of the C14 are hosted in the same extra-secure datacenter – DC4: a databunker located 25 meters underground in Paris.

Then, the main differences:

  • Price: The C14 Cold Storage is more affordable than the C14 classic and offers 75GB of free storage space every month.
  • Protocols: The C14 Cold Storage is 100% S3 compliant, while the C14 Classic uses legacy FTP protocols.
  • Encryption: C14 Cold Storage does not (yet) support encryption.
  • Restoration: C14 Cold Storage allows you to restore a single file in a few clicks from the Scaleway console or using the API, whereas with C14 Classic, the whole archive has to be restored, even if you only need one file from it.


What Additional Services Does C14 Classic Offer?

  • API: An API for developers is available to fully automate the archiving of your IT platforms on C14.
  • Large volumes: A technical and commercial team is available for large projects. Contact our technical support for more information.
