Multi-Site File Archiving
With growing data volumes across different industries, an intuitive data management strategy is needed to manage the growing data volumes, backup and restore challenges. A data management solution helps to manage the volume of data, storage costs, and increases system efficiencies.
The Challenge is multiplied when there are multiple files servers in use, it then becomes a constant struggle to free storage and bring down costs. not only that but the time it takes to manage file servers is yet more cost to the organization, A centralized solution is required that can centrally manage to analyze data, manage archive policies, and where data is centrally stored, deduplicated and managed.
ShareArchiver offers an end to end solution addressing challenges around data management. ShareArchiver offers 4 primary benefits
- Pre-archive data analysis and Visualisation
- Intuitive Policies for archiving data – Archive stale data
- Storage management – Integrated & seamless access
- FULL-TEXT Search and E-Discovery
ShareArchiver agents are capable of analyzing data at remote sites on file servers and producing volumetric analytical graphs against analyzed data. This offers a simplistic view of data by volume and over time, providing administrators with 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 centralizes 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.
Centralize Data Repository
Data volumes are increasing rapidly. This leads to higher data management and storage costs for remote sites. Historically organizations 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 it 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 slow down 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
