SearchStorage surveys recently indicated that 70% of companies use some form of archiving for email, file systems, databases and other applications. Every year, there is an increase in data within the SME sector and such a build-up of data can put pressure on your IT system. In-house data archiving can increase your IT budget spend and add to administrative workloads.
SA1 Solutions’ data archiving service enables you to securely store large amounts of electronic data no longer in active use, freeing up your additional storage. Archiving your data also ensures essential documentation is maintained, adhering to regulations and compliance.
So how would data archiving benefit your business:
Visibility and better management
Paying for outsourced server support is much cheaper than paying to support your own server and storing your servers or renting virtual space in a dedicated facility eliminates many potential risks, such as management, security, downtime and data loss.
What you may not realise is the amount of duplicate data you have, sorting through duplicates can save you 60-70% and allow you to consolidate your servers.
Reduction in backup costs
With a load of data taken from your live servers and put into data archiving solutions there is no need to constantly take backups of that old, historical data. This will reduce the amount of backup expenditure.
