For years, archives have been used as long-term repositories for infrequently accessed data, think cold storage. The idea being that older data would not be needed, so there was rarely any rationale for how to logically store and access it if required. Today, however, data is a crucial corporate asset that needs to be quickly accessible at any future point in time. This means data archiving and storage are not only important for historical record-keeping and compliance regulations, but business analysis, intelligence, data mining, and other essential business functions. What’s more, according to IDC, unstructured data like videos, documents, audio files, PDFs, and images will make up 80 percent of worldwide data by 2025, making the task of archiving more complex than ever before.
In today’s business environment, organizations are looking for cost-effective, active archive solutions that provide easy data access as well as the ability to logically manage unstructured data for the long term. An active archive is a way to skillfully organize, access, and retain data so that it is useful today and forever. Companies need a solution that goes beyond traditional archiving to provide immediate, on-demand access to business-critical data, no matter where the data is stored. Most importantly, given today’s digital world where data will continue to expand from bytes to terabytes, companies need an affordable, scalable storage capacity that supports remote access. The ideal solution will deliver archive and retrieval capabilities in a single solution, while using economical, scalable storage to deliver secure file access from anywhere, anytime.
