Multi-Site File Archiving
With the growing data volumes, an intuitive data management strategy is needed to manage the growing data backup and restore challenge. the issue is exacerbated where organisations have multiple file servers in single or remote locations.
ShareArchiver offers an end to end solution addressing challenges around data management. ShareArchiver has 4 main areas.
- Analysing data – Understand data.
- Archiving data – Archive stale data
- Storage management – Integrated & seamless access
ShareArchiver agents are capable of analyzing data at remote sites on file servers and producing volumetric analytical graphs against analysed data. This offers a simplistic view of data by volume and over time, providing administrators a powerful tool that allows them to determine the policy criteria to be applied at remote offices. It also provides a clear understanding ahead of time of how much storage will be reclaimed by the archive policy.
Remotely Manage Storage and Data
Using ShareArchiver in a distributed environment allows for a remotely-installed agent to archive to a central archive repository while de-duplicating data on the fly. The archived data is in accordance with archive policies defined centrally. These policies are highly configurable and can be applied to different file type and folder paths targeting different data structures.
Archiving remote office data centralises management, allows for global de-duplication and reduces costs, while allowing easier data recovery.
Agents are extremely efficient, and capable of filtering and targeting archive data with accuracy, data that is for archiving according to policy. This is accomplished without having to traverse millions of files every time. This technology allows targeting files and archiving the targets very efficiently.
Centralise Data Repository
Data volumes are increasing rapidly. This leads to higher data management and storage costs for remote sites. Historically organisations continue to invest in larger capacity storage systems and backup solutions to cater for these larger volumes of information. ShareArchiver allows administrators to archive remotely stored, unstructured data to a central archive while leaving behind stubs for seamless access to users.
Disaster Recovery – The ShareArchiver Way – It is VERY common for administrators to archive data once its deemed less important, only to then get requests to restore the same data. This leads to:
- Excessive storage usage
- Time consuming and slow
- Inadequate bandwidth may further slowdown the restore process
ShareArchiver offers an effective approach. You can remotely restore data and make it accessible immediately, and since the data restored consists only of pointers (stubs), the process is incredibly quick and efficient.Users access whichever file they require on demand from the stubs.
This offers the following benefits:
- Restoring data is quick and easy even over a WAN/LAN
- The restore process does not take up bandwidth
- The restored Stub data takes very little storage
- Users access files seamlessly on demand
