As the digital age expands, markets mandate procedures for information access, processing and storage. However, present data and information storage systems are vulnerable to cyber attack or are extremely expensive to maintain. Therefore, Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) allows for realistic settings that deliver safe, guaranteed document retention, deletion, searches, and migration.


WORM accesses hardware sparsely, minimizing excess transaction loads. This allows WORM semantics to maintain ordinary storage in the server, while producing information in periodic bursts. WORM also provides a data server primarily for defense against malicious actions such as migration of information between unauthorized devices. The server also prevents actions that have historically caused negative results by keeping a large memory bank.
