Archiving - More Than a Chore

The extreme growth of unstructured data is one of the most important challenges which companies have to face within the next years. Simply expanding primary storage will no longer solve this problem because of economic and technical reasons. Based on the fact that most of the unstructured data is inactive (“cold data”) companies are looking increasingly for solutions to solve this dilemma.

The solution is to archive data to suitable secondary storage systems designed for long-term data preservation and archiving. “PoINT Storage Manager – Archive Edition” provides an easy to install and intuitive to use software for automatic policy-based migration of cold data and data to be archived from primary to secondary storage.
