Customer A has a cluster of 5 file servers with about 4 million files with just over 3TB data. Using FileArchiver the following was identified:
- 1.5TB of jpg docs & PDFs alone, were not recently modified – by implementing a 12 month stubbing policy, 1.2TB of server space was saved just based on these 3 extensions.
- Duplication amounted to 20% of total data – by de-duping, a further 600GB of space was reduced.
- In real terms an 80% reduction in server space was achieved in total.
