The volumes of unstructured data, like files, are growing at greater than 60% annually. Infrequently used files are taking up expensive production storage space; 95% are opened fewer than five times, while around 66% are opened only once.
In a short time, large amounts of aged, static unstructured file data can build up in your primary storage. This not only wastes precious space, but also costs time and money to manage, maintain and back up, and application performance will degrade.
Dell’s archiving solutions with our storage platforms and certified partner software use policies established by administrators to remove this inactive data from primary data stores and move it to less expensive archive storage repositories.
- Reduces costs to manage data by automated policies
- Protects and optimizes retrieval of data
- Restores original application performance
