Block-level Tiering vs File-level Tiering
Over 70% of data is cold and has not been accessed in months, yet it often sits on expensive storage and consumes the same backup resources as hot data. As a result, storage costs are rising, backups are slow, and recovery is unreliable.
Data tiering is an established cost-savings solution that can thwart this cycle of expenses, but the way it’s done can significantly affect your actual savings and your options to access your cold data.
Access this paper to learn the difference between block-level tiering and file-level tiering to ensure you use the optimal approach(es) for your specific systems and maximize your savings.
