Purpose of the DRACOON Data-Bring-in Service
If you start with DRACOON and want to upload a large number of existing files to DRACOON (e.g. an entire hard disk of your previous file server), this process can be complex and tedious (example: uploading 2 TB of data via a typical DSL 100 connection with the maximum possible upload speed of 40 MBit/sec takes more than 6 days). To speed up this process DRACOON offers a highly secure so-called Data Bring-in Service. This service uses a hard disk of our technology partner Digittrade, which is certified by the BSI in Germany and secured by hardware encryption, smartcard, and 8-digit PIN.
How the DRACOON Data-Bring-In Service works
- Tell your Sales or Customer Success contact at DRACOON that you would like to use the data bring-in service. Tell DRACOON the total size of your data you wish to import into your DRACOON.
- DRACOON will send you a special hard disk (capacity: max. 1 TB, USB 3.0) together with a smartcard from Digittrade.
- Copy your existing data to the hard disk you received from DRACOON.
If you have highly confidential data, we recommend not to copy them to the hard disk received from DRACOON but to upload them yourself and separately to a client-side encrypted data room in your DRACOON. Uploading into an encrypted data room has to be done by users of your DRACOON as the data on the uploading user's device is encrypted on the client side. The DRACOON Operations team cannot do this for you as the purpose of encrypted data rooms is that not even the manufacturer of the cloud solution (in this case DRACOON) has access to them. Thus, exclude highly confidential data from the bring-in service and upload it to an encrypted data room yourself.
- Send the hard disk to DRACOON (but not together with the smartcard).
- Send DRACOON the smartcard belonging to the hard disk separately and with a time delay (e.g. one day later).
Sending the hard disk and the smartcard separately ensures that the data cannot be accessed if the hard disk is lost in transit, as the corresponding smartcard with the corresponding PIN is required to decrypt the data.
- After DRACOON receives the hard disk and smartcard, the data on the hard disk will be imported into your DRACOON cloud by the DRACOON Operations team.
- After completion of the import process, DRACOON will inform you and ask you to check the completeness of the data in your DRACOON cloud. After your confirmation, your data bring-in disk will be securely deleted by the DRACOON Operations team.
