Relationships
Synonym: 

n. ~ Facilities for housing materials away from where they are used; off-site storage.

Notes: 

Remote storage may be used to house inactive or low-use materials, reducing the costs of storing records in expensive office areas by moving them to less expensive warehouse facilities. Remote 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.
