Informed data placement for a compliance-ready archive
Metallic® File & Object Archive
File & Object Archive FAQs
Backup is all about making copies of data to support data availability needs. These secondary versions or copies are primarily kept to support RPO and RTO objectives. The focus is on ensuring critical data can be accessed after a data loss event.
Archive exists to cost-effectively manage old, inactive, or historical data that might be needed for infrequent access in the future. i.e., compliance. Archive takes primary versions of this data and moves it into a cheaper environment for potential access in the future.
Data is archived because it is not accessed frequently, however, still yields value or importance to an organization. Unlike long-term retention (backup), archiving reduces costs by migrating data to inexpensive storage while ensuring data compliance. To match the Quality of Service (QoS) needs of the data, archived data should be stored in a more cost-effective environment.
Without the functionality to archive inactive data, organizations will find it challenging to balance the cost of storage and QoS while adhering to compliance regulations. This will result in increased costs, increased risks, and inefficiencies.
