A recent State of the Data Center Report found that storage needs are growing fastest for e-mail, collaboration data and file archiving. With unstructured information consuming a large percentage of an organization’s storage, it is important to classify data, including information from messaging, file servers and collaborative systems, onto different tiers of cost-effective storage and into an archive. Archiving is critical to storage-tiering practice allowing you to move less-frequently used information from high-cost disk and archive to lower cost storage while maintaining accessibility. Symantec’s archiving solutions automate retention and storage of e-mails, files, instant messages and other unstructured content in accordance with your IT policies. Benefits include reducing your data footprint, improved performance and scalability, greener IT, and increased end-user productivity.
