ShareArchiver Frequently Asked Questions


What is ShareArchiver?

ShareArchiver is a holistic file archiving and data management solution, designed to manage large volumes of data residing on file servers. The solution is easy to deploy and use. It offers seamless and integrated access to archived content through file stubs (ghost files which are zero bytes in size). delivering massive storage reduction.

Archived data is indexed securely and can be searched using a powerful full-text search engine.


How does it work?

ShareArchiver is typically deployed as a virtual appliance, it take only 10 mins to deploy. 

A pre-built virtual machine can easily be deployed and used as the archiving endpoint or you could archive data to NAS Device.

ShareArchiver DOES NOT require any additional databases. 

ShareArchiver can be archive data to your internal or network secondary archive storage (such as NAS, SAN or SAS/Cloud storage) and start archiving.

It is a cost-effective, all-in-one file archiving solution that allows users to:

  • Analyse data and produce charts that make understanding data easy and effective.
  • Create effective policies for maximum efficiency.
  • Reduce storage costs and optimize data backup and recovery.
  • Automate archiving processes to boost productivity.

Eliminate archive management costs

ShareArchiver is a self-maintaining system.

What is file stubbing?

File stubbing is the technology that allows moving the original file to archive storage and replacing the file with a ghost file (stub files).  This results in massive storage savings whilst user experiences seamless data access. The stub file looks and feels like the original file, including the file properties (i.e. name, size), and on access behaves as the original file.

How much does it cost?

The cost for ShareArchiver will vary based upon your requirements. Cloud deployments are the most cost-effective way to off-load your data to a secure archive, offering the same experience as an on-premise solution without the upfront cost.

How fast and easy is it to implement?

ShareArchiver is simple to deploy and use. Implementation typically take around 30 mins to get started,  once data is archived, users continue to access archived data without interruption – 

In addition to access through network share – user may also log-in using network credentials to search and access files in seconds. The system retains existing file structures and metadata to provide users with a seamless experience.

If I don’t have On-Prem archive storage, can I still archive data?

Yes. ShareArchiver offers plug-and-play virtual appliances that archive your data to the cloud. These virtual appliances are designed to be extremely resilient. 

I have many file servers across different sites, do I need to deploy multiple archive systems? 

No, you can achieve archiving across many file servers at single or multiple sites using a single archive instance – the data can be archived centrally, archived at each site OR can be archived to a cloud storage targets.

As data is archived to and retrieved directly from the cloud by each site independently, this results in high scalability and fast retrieval and performance.
