Company data has to be archived according to certain laws and obligations. The corresponding conditions contain that data have to be protected against unintended deletion up to criminal premeditated modifications. A storage management solution like PoINT Storage Manager offers within its Tiered Storage Concept a storage layer (archive tier) preventing data modifications or deletions within a given time period (retention) thus minimizing business risks.
Archiving of data does not only offer compliance but reduces also the amount of data in primary storage. This results in a considerable reduction of the required backup time and an optimal and efficient usage of the primary storage devices. In addition archiving causes an economic advantage due to the fact that there is no need to extend the cost-intensive primary storage capacities.
