    • What are the challenges of data archiving?

    • As IT teams search for data archiving solutions, the technology they choose must overcome a number of challenges.

      • Growing volumes of data. The sheer volume data produced by the average organization continues to grow exponentially. Data archiving solutions must be able to scale easily to manage ever-larger storage volumes without an increase in administrative time.
      • Legal compliance. Regulatory frameworks are constantly evolving and becoming more stringent. Data archiving strategies must simplify the task of archiving data to comply with a wide variety of regulations and make it easier and less time-consuming for administrators to fulfill legal inquiries and compliance reporting requests.
      • Data security. Data held in archive must be protected from loss, corruption, theft and compromise.
      • Need for access. Archived data may need to be accessed by a wide variety of users. Data archiving solutions can simplify access requirements with role-based permissions that allow users to easily search and retrieve without intervention by IT teams.
      • Increased costs. Data archiving solutions can help to reduce the cost of storage by archiving only essential data, by automatically eliminating data that no longer needs to be retained and by eliminating duplicated information.
      • Management complexity. Configuring data archiving and retention policies can be remarkably time-consuming. Superior data archiving technologies must minimize the administrative burden on IT teams for managing archived data.

    • FAQs: what is archiving, and other questions

    • What is archiving?
      Data archiving is the task of identifying and moving data that is no longer actively used to a separate storage system for long-term retention. Archived data is typically information that is important to the organization or must be retained for legal reasons or for compliance with regulatory frameworks.

      What are the benefits of data archiving?
      Effective data archiving enables organizations to:

      • Reduce the cost of primary storage by moving data to less expensive, low-performance, high-capacity archive storage media.
      • Reduce the cost of backup and the time that backup solutions require for backup windows by minimizing the volume of data that must be regularly backed up.
      • Improve performance of information systems such as email systems by minimizing the size of PST files.
      • Maintain compliance with a wide variety of regulatory systems.

      What is data archiving versus data backup?
      While both data archiving and data backup are forms of data protection that involve use of secondary storage on less-expensive storage media, the two processes have different purposes. Data backup provides copies of active data that can be used to restore information in the event of corruption, loss, theft or compromise. Data archiving is intended for long-term retention of information that is no longer active, but which must be kept for historic, legal or compliance purposes.
