The key difference between backup vs. archiving is that data backups are designed for the rapid recovery of operational data, while data archiving stores data that's no longer in day-to-day use but must still be retained.

Data backups are intended to provide a quick means of recovering data that's in current or recent use in cases ranging from data corruption or accidental deletion to full disaster recovery scenarios. Speed of restoration is vitally important.

Data archiving is intended as a repository for data that needs to be stored for periods that may extend to decades. Speed of restoration from a data archive usually isn't as critical as from a data backup, but searchability is of vital importance.

Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognised, the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species (L. africana and L. cyclotis respectively). Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Elephantidae are the only surviving family of the order Proboscidea; other, now extinct, families of the order include mammoths and mastodons. Male African elephants are the largest surviving terrestrial animals and can reach a height of 4 m (13 ft) and weigh 7,000 kg (15,000 lb). All elephants have several distinctive features the most notable of which is a long trunk or proboscis, used for many purposes, particularly breathing, lifting water and grasping objects. Their incisors grow into tusks, which can serve as weapons and as tools for moving objects and digging. Elephants' large ear flaps help to control their body temperature. Their pillar-like legs can carry their great weight. African elephants have larger ears and concave backs while Asian elephants have smaller ears and convex or level backs.
