FileArchiver Delivers Much More Than Just File Archiving
Fiona Mulvaney – Waterford Technologies
Traditionally, many people view a file archiving solution as purely a solution that reduces the space on an organization’s file servers. But can file server archiving deliver more than just space savings? Based on our discussions with our customers, our archiving solution FileArchiver is delivering much more than just archiving to their businesses.
How Our Clients Use FileArchiver
Replace or Enhance Backup Software
FileArchiver can help your organization to backup their data by archiving files on a weekly, daily or even hourly basis. FileArchiver can also help to speed up the backup process by moving old or unneeded files to the archive where they are compressed and stored for future recovery. All that is left in the original location is a tiny 1KB shortcut.
Disaster Recovery (DR)
With FileArchiver, you can easily copy and archive your valuable data to your onsite disaster recovery location or a cloud based solution. This solution is seamless to the user allowing them to easily recover the file from the archive through a stub placed in the original location.
The ability to quickly identify which files you have and exactly where they are stored can help you to meet compliance requirements and when it comes to compliance reviews and audits. Once the files have been located, they can always be recovered and restored quickly and easily.
Our file archiving solution also provides our clients with the ability to gain extra insight into their data. A number of intuitive reports will help you to analyze and understand the data contained on your servers which can help to identify potential issues, optimizations and improvements.
Information Life Cycle Management (ILM)
According to Gartner, up to 80% of all the data stored in an organization is redundant. Identifying this redundant data with FileArchiver allows you to move old and useless data from expensive tier 1 storage to less expensive locations and help to save your business money.
FileArchiver allows you to copy and move your data out of your expensive tier 1 storage without your users even knowing. Our solution adds a stub to the original location which allows end users to access files which have been archived in the same way they would access any other file.
