Struggling with over-retention of data, a spiralling Total Cost of Ownership and a growing lack of data control? Is it becoming harder to utilise your company’s information as an asset and to manage information as a risk?
The ability to manage the burgeoning volumes of data our businesses generate every day, and to use that information appropriately and in context is the key to digital transformation and organisational success. The ability to store and manage that data cost effectively, whilst efficiently ensuring the safety and security of the data becomes paramount.
Smart Storage from Exonar allows intelligent data control policies to be defined. Smart Storage provides the capability to:
Classify the type of data being held
Identify the storage costs across multiple facilities
Automatically to move data to the right location with the right performance and protection based on the data’s content, metadata and importantly, its value and risk.
Crucially, Smart Storage moves data so that it always remains searchable, discoverable and accessible to the right set of people and applications.
Optimise Total Cost of Ownership:
Performance for frequently accessed data through smart storage tiering.
Orphaned, stale and rarely accessed data is moved from ‘hot’ to ‘warm’ or ‘cold’ storage (e.g. cloud storage).
Reducing data volumes:
Verbose or repeated data is place in Deduplicated and Compressed storage locations.
Encrypting sensitive data:
Sensitive data is protected by moving it to an encrypted and access restricted storage location.
Retention and records management:
Search-based retention policies control not only where data is kept but how long it is kept for.
Type-appropriate storage locations:
Moving important data to storage locations with DR policies that define data appropriate Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).
Rapid data production:
Data can be found rapidly for regulatory events such as GDPR Subject Access Requests
