According to the Digital-Universe survey of IDC published end of 2012 the data volume in Western Europe doubles all two and a half years. Due to this continuous data growth alternative storage solutions are indispensable. Furthermore data and the corresponding information becomes more important as companies can learn e.g. more about the customer behavior. Additionally enterprises are confronted with complicated and strict compliance regulations. Therefore archiving and backup strategies have to be covered by any company security concept.
For keeping the backup volume of data stored on the primary storage as low as possible advanced methods - besides the already used functions like de-duplication for identifying and eliminating data redundancies -are necessary. One of these methods is the migration of inactive data to cost-efficient secondary storage. By PoINT Storage Manager this is carried out according to pre-defined policies, whereby data can still be accessed transparently. As from experience only about 20% of the total data volume is used actively, the time and personnel effort for the daily backup can be reduced to a fraction. Thus not only the backup-process can be accelerated, but also recovery time can be shortened by PoINT Storage Manager. In addition PoINT Storage Manager reduces costs as primary storage extensions are minimized and the extent of required backup licenses respectively capacities can be decreased.
