Data archiving is a process all businesses need to get to grips with, but long-term storage can be expensive.
For this reason, as well as for the significant data recovery benefits, many organisations are turning to the cloud for their archiving needs.
Archiving is necessary for storing all of the data that businesses need to hold on to but is not needed every day, nor is it essential for the running of the company.
"We already know that cloud can provide scalable storage and therefore as data is moved to the cloud we don’t have to think about how much infrastructure we’re keeping on-site to manage that data. And because this data doesn’t need high access levels, the latency … associated with cloud storage [is not an issue]," Chris
Evans, an independent consultant with Langton Blue, told Searchstorage.co.uk.
Saving money on physical storage can be a huge incentive to move to the cloud as businesses struggle to increase margins in the current climate.
