How Active Data Archiving can help in Manage Database Growth

Data archival

Introduction:

For many organizations, it’s a big challenge to archive or safely retire seldom used data from growing databases while enabling users to access and use the information, when needed. With Database and Application Archiving, organizations can streamline their database operations while running at peak performance. Database and Application Archiving provides a comprehensive strategy that allows you to achieve your critical business objectives including the availability of critical applications, reducing data storage hardware and administration costs, and improving daily database performance.

What is Active Archive?

Active Archive is a combined solution of open systems applications, disk and tape hardware that allows you to effortlessly store, manage and access all of your data. Developing policies to meet your organizations storage requirements enables automatic migration of data onto more cost effective storage. There is no longer a need to store all of your data on expensive disk, yet it remains completely accessible.

Active archives offer an intelligent framework made up of applications that offer storage virtualization and a data management platform that effortlessly stores and scales to petabytes of data across different storage mediums. Optimize primary disk’s role in your environment and reduce costs per terabyte up to 75% by creating a seamless storage pool. An active archive easily accommodates large scale data growth by migrating infrequently accessed data to economy storage.

Effortlessly manage unstructured data by employing an active archive that seamlessly expands the file system over all storage platforms. An active archive becomes the optimal storage choice because it eliminates IT administrator intervention. Users have complete access to all of the organization’s data, regardless of the platform it is stored on. Active archive helps you properly provision your storage and give you online access to ALL of your data.
