Data Retention for Compliance
Current compliance regulations give long-term retention a new definition. Many companies turn to off-site storage for backup tapes, but that can get complicated and impact RTOs and RPOs negatively - particularly because it takes much longer to restore files and systems when you have to wait to receive the tapes.
A small financial services company was doing just that, and had a patchwork of solutions for server backup and vault archiving. Management of document retention for compliance was too difficult.
This two-page paper explains how this company solved their backup blues with a unified solution for backup and recovery. Read on to see how they were able to leverage this solution to take advantage of the inexpensive-but-dependable off-site repository for backup data, a data-centric view across multiple archives, a clear required chain of custody for compliant vault access, and more.
