Where are print jobs stored?

With Pharos Cloud’s Secure Release workflow, a copy of a print job is temporarily stored in the cloud if the cloud backup option is enabled. This allows the print job to be released even if the originating workstation is offline or does not have network line of sight to the printer by routing it to the printer through another available Print Scout. Organizations can prevent print jobs from being stored in the cloud by not enabling cloud backup. In this case, however, the user will not be able to release the job if the originating workstation is offline or does not have network line of sight to the printer.

For non-Print Scout submissions (iOS, iPadOS, Android, Chrome OS, Linux), the document will always be stored in the Pharos Cloud.

Pharos Cloud’s licensable Data Privacy and Regional Document Storage capability helps global organizations adhere to local data privacy and data sovereignty requirements by providing 21 different global regions where Administrators can control 1) what print job information is collected for reporting.

Direct Print jobs don’t go to the cloud. Instead, they’re sent directly to the printer via IPPS/IPP. Only job metadata is collected, encrypted, and sent to Pharos Cloud for analytics. You have total control over what gets collected so you can adhere to any local data privacy and data sovereignty requirements.
