• Archive

    Archiving is a process of periodically moving unused or infrequently used data on a host computer to secondary storage, thereby reducing the size of data on the primary storage. Hipskind TSG’s Cloud Archive service is a cloud based archiving service that allows organizations to intelligently store, manage, and discover all your critical business information while providing easy and intuitive access for end users.

Comprehensive Solution

Using CommVault’s Simpana, the key is to identify the value of your data and move it to a cost effective tier of storage. Hipskind TSG’s solution optimizes primary file storage by automatically moving inactive files to less expensive secondary storage in the cloud. This storage is object based and automatically replicates the data to our data centers in Chicago, Atlanta and Las Vegas. Tiered files appear to users and applications as if they remain on the primary storage and are quickly retrievable, yet backup activities on primary storage need only to address the protection of active files.

The Benefits

  • Simplified Data Management: One-Pass Agent enables you to easily manage the backed up data in your environment, by providing pre-defined archiving rules.
  • Point-in-Time Recovery: In the event of a serious system failure, such as the breakdown of hardware, software, or operating systems, the solution provides a point-in-time recovery of files at any given time.
  • Reduce capital expenditures: Spending on additional storage is curtailed when capacity on primary storage can be reclaimed.
  • Lower operating expenses: Storage administrators no longer have to be consumed with lengthy, error-prone manual processes
  • Improved performance: Backup times are decreased, minimizing disruption to other applications and reducing the possibility of backup errors.

Reduced Costs

Curtail spending on constant storage additions by reclaiming the capacity of your primary storage. Hipskind TSG’s solution optimizes primary file storage by automatically moving inactive files to less expensive secondary storage in the cloud.

Efficiency

Moving inactive or infrequently accessed information to a secondary storage tier frees up primary storage capacity, not only resulting in lower TCO but also improved application performance. Combined with the administrative time saved by eliminating lengthy, error-prone manual processes, and Cloud Archive brings a new level of efficiency to your data storage.

The Issue

Rapid growth of unstructured data not only drives up an organization’s capital expenditures, but also results in storage related inefficiencies and disruption to business operations. According to IDC, many organizations report that on average more than two-thirds of their data has not been accessed in at least 90 days.
