UCSD's Data Retention Policy for Kaltura Media

Every Kaltura user at UCSD has unlimited media storage with our partner Kaltura. For a variety of reasons, however, content will not be kept in the cloud permanently unless it's viewed every so often. Read below to learn the specific data retention policy.

UCSD-Kaltura Data Retention Policy

Your video content will remain in Kaltura's cloud indefinitely, though the content must be viewed briefly at least once every couple of years. This applies to every individual piece of media you own. Below are the two triggers of which to be aware.

  1. If your Kaltura media has not been viewed for 2 years, the entry's flavors will be deleted. The source (the original file that was added) will remain. The system will send you an email warning you that this will occur one week prior to the 2-year mark.
  2. If your Kaltura media has not been viewed for 4 years, the entry will be deleted entirely. The system will send you an email warning you that this will occur one week prior to the 4-year mark.
