Relationships
Synonym: 

n. ~ Facilities for housing materials away from where they are used; remote storage.

Notes: 

Off-site storage may be used to house inactive records, reducing the costs of storing records in expensive office areas by moving them to less expensive warehouse facilities. Off-site storage may also be used to keep copies of vital (essential) records to increase the chances that at least one copy will survive a disaster.
