Long-term Archiving: What to Do When You Have to Save Data for a Long Time
Compliance and other business drivers are forcing companies to save data for much longer periods, from years to in some cases decades. These same regulations require that this information be located and retrieved very quickly. Compounded over many quarters and years, the total amount of data that needs to be archived can be staggering. Traditional methods of archiving, such as saving backup tapes, don't cut it. Likewise, saving everything on primary storage is much too expensive. Furthermore, simply recovering files is often the easy part, since the data is often locked up in older proprietary application formats. What's a storage professional to do?
This presentation addresses the best practices in long-term archiving. It will cover the following:
- Important elements of long-term archiving
- The importance of having a workable policy
- How different data types can require different archiving and management strategies and technology choices
- Which products and technologies work best
- How to approach an archiving project
- How to effectively sell investment in proper archiving tools to management
