- Application layer:
- ingress: add metadata, "bag up" files, easy-to-use;
- egress: Web interface, searchable.

- low cost over speed;
- ideally, with data-integrity checks.
- Need something real-soon-now:
- because we do! (Cold data on expensive storage.)
- And for credibility (reputational damage).
