If you are storing Backups and archives in locations other than your data centre for "Data Recovery"/"Data Tolerence" (DR/DT) reasons, then that is normally referred to as, off-site storage which is increasingly today in the cloud.

So it sounds like you are referring to Offsite Storage.

Is it a brand name like Iron Mountain that you are after?
