Cloud Archiving

Keeping ageing data online is expensive, both in primary storage costs and unnecessary backups, as well as deriving little business value due to difficulty in search. Leaving data to stagnate is also poor practice from a governance perspective. Cloud archiving solves all these problems, prolonging the capacity of existing SAN and NAS and delivering features such as e-discovery, content search and legal hold.

In addition to our own cloud, solution options include integration with Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure platforms, either exclusively or as part of a hybrid architecture.
