What if your cost for data archiving was doubling – every year? Lately, data amounts emerging in companies grow up to 80% every year. This also drives up expenses for data storage. Every company is obliged to audit-proof archiving and has to find a way to store these enormous amounts of data securely and efficiently. The ideal solution: Hierarchical Storage Management.
Companies are downright being overtaken by data: E-mail, photo files, market data, performance analysis, big data. To prevent being overtaken by the expenses for data archiving as well, HSM offers an efficient and inexpensive archiving solution.
HSM distributes data in an intelligent way between storage devices with different properties. It poses the following questions: Does the data need to be quickly accessible? Or is it used rarely so that loading time is tolerable? It then decides on which storage device to save the data. Often-used data is put on fast but expensive storage devices that need basically no time to load. Seldomly used data is shifted to slower devices that are significantly cheaper. Thus, multi-dimensional storage systems are being built to make sure that every file is stored with costs as low as possible.
The user can access the files as usual through the filing system. A placeholder is put in the original memory location, referring to the new location. When activating a file, it is copied to its original location. To prevent data from being lost in this process, there are several backup copies.
All companies in Germany are obliged to archive their data in line with GoBD regulations. To put it briefly, this means that all data has to be write-protected and accessible at any time. The archiving does not only have to store data securely but also needs to satisfy legal regulations for compliance requirements. ArchiveManager by GRAU DATA is doing this for you. It archives in a secure, long-term and audit-proof way – and all that with low storage costs thanks to HSM.
ArchiveManager allows you to maintain an unlimited number of files in different storage systems. In doing so, the user keeps his usual filing system, which means he can access the archive immediately and without rearrangements. ArchiveManager chooses the storage device independently and autonomously. This way, you achieve the ideal combination of access speed, security and cost efficiency.
For your audit-proof archiving, ArchvieManager offers you the ideal solution, all while remaining flexible, scalable and cost-efficient.
The world of IT never stands still! That is why the GRAU DATA ArchiveManager and its open source alternative OpenArchive also are in a dynamic process of development and are constantly being expanded with further features. OpenArchive is a collaborative project that invites everyone to participate. We at GRAU DATA continue to guarantee the quality of OpenArchive.
