Data experts estimate that data grows at 20-50% annually. In four years, your data will be twice to five times as large. Will your systems still be able to perform nightly backups in acceptable time frames four years from now?
Archiving will move your rarely used data from your applications into another location. The data is not deleted, it is stored. This reduces backup time as only new and active data will need to be backed up which can be completed within your maintenance windows.
It is common for users to keep everything in their email Inbox. While this practice is convenient for the end-user, the growing number of emails becomes a major issue for System Administrators who needs to ensure their mail servers are running smoothly.
By archiving old emails from the mail server, it reduces the data size and allows the server to focus on the most recent emails.
End-users archive emails to PST files on their computers to meet mailbox quotas set by their System Administrators. This creates hundreds or thousands of separate PST files scattered across the network. Searching for email messages stored in PST files becomes nearly impossible.
With our solution, email messages can be archived to a centrally managed server and easily searchable from instead of archiving to separate PST files.
In recent years, Governments have been mandating companies to make electronic documents available upon request. Retrieving data from tapes and PST files is time consuming and costly.
Our central archiving solution would enable your company to search documents & emails more quickly and efficiently to meet these requests.
Your corporate data grows over time, so does the need to store them. But storage hardware is expensive, and the IT budget may not necessarily grow as well.
Instead of spending money to purchase and setup expensive hardware to store growing data, let our service archive infrequently used data and free up precious space.
Traditionally, backup tapes are commonly used as the archiving medium. The drawbacks with tapes are that they are hard to access, not searchable, short lifespan and often stored remotely. These factors put a damper on search times.
A centralized archiving solution ensures data is searchable, available for business intelligence and projection, and even litigation should the need arise.
