Archive.is is a privately funded on-demand archiving site, similar to WebCite. One key difference is that it stores "Web 2.0" pages better than WebCite; it also supports zip downloads of entire individual webpages and takes a screenshot of the webpage. It does not store PDFs, binary files, Adobe Flash content, videos, or sounds. The maximum size of a webpage it will archive (including images) is 50MB. Additionally, Archive.is forwards your IP address to the submitted website in a X-Forwarded-For header.
The website shot up significantly in popularity in the second half of 2014 primarily due to the GamerGate controversy. As of Feb. 2015, the website has archived about 200 "Tb" of data. It is likely 200 Terabyte TB, not Terabit Tb as is quoted. Nonetheless, if accurate, 200Tb ≈ 25TB.
According to their FAQ:
It is privately funded, there in no complex finance behind it. It may look more or less reliable compared to the startup-style funding or an univercity project, depending on which risks are taken into account. My death can cause interruption of service, but something like new market condition or changing head of a department can not.
