SIMSAnywhere Document Storage Service (SADS)
SADS uses Amazon S3 for cloud based document storage. Amazon S3 is a secure, scalable, redundant storage service
with 99.999999999% durability. This durability level corresponds to an average annual expected loss of 0.000000001% of files. This means that for every 10,000 documents you store,
you can on average expect to lose a single file once every 10,000,000 years. Translation: you have a better chance of winning the lottery than losing a file.

SIMS and SIMSAnywhere use AES-256 to encrypt documents before they are transmitted to SADS for storage. SADS stores document metadata (i.e., the original file name, the user who
uploaded it, etc.) in a secure database on the SIMSAnywhere server. You can find technical details for the SIMSAnywhere server
