The German company BayernInvest Kapitalverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH from Munich has been working for 25 years in the financial sector and is operating daily with valuable information. The huge data volume of the company has led to problems within data protection and a solution had to be found for optimizing storage resources and for off-loading primary storage. It was especially important that inactive data could be archived according compliance requirements and that data access was still transparent.
