A company’s data is memorized on a plurality of storage systems with varying characteristics, performance and prices.
As is well known, IOPS, latency, data access frequency, file size and compliance are some of the key factors when choosing the storage technologies, architecture and products to meet the needs of today’s businesses.
This engenders a complex situation where different storage systems become independent silos managed through a whole range of policy, purchasing and upgrade approaches, creating a real headache for storage administrators and for the company’s IT budget.
But this is only one aspect of the problem: most of the files stored by companies, regardless of their size, are rarely read again 30 days after their creation. Most of them will never be opened twice. As a consequence, 60 to 80% of the data on storage infrastructure is never accessed again in the future.
Keeping so many inactive files is extremely costly, not only in wasted storage space, but also because these inactive files are included in repeated backup procedures and migrated many times over the years to new and costly storage devices. This only leads to a huge waste of money and manpower, a specially worrying scenario for firms wrestling with their IT budget.
The time has come for an effective strategy to eliminate all these problems and inefficiencies once and for all. We have developed a disruptive technology solution that says goodbye to all this unnecessary complexity, inefficiency and cost.
