Description

With data growth rates in the 50% - 100% range for most enterprises today and IT budgets declining, it's clear that legacy approaches to managing storage capacity growth need to be rethought.  The fact that, for most enterprises, the performance requirements of 70% to 90% of the data currently sitting on expensive primary storage can be met much more cost-effectively with an active archival storage platform provides an opportunity to drastically cut the average blended $/GB most organizations are paying to house all their storage (primary and secondary).  The customer problem is how to cost-effectively manage explosive data growth over time horizons on the order of decades while at the same time meeting the demands of new regulatory requirements, such as e-discovery. 

This session will present new archiving strategies and solutions that answer the needs of 21st century businesses.  It will look at why yesterday's technologies, such as tape or tiered storage devices, fail to address both long term archiving requirements and cost efficiencies required by today's enterprises. Presenters will include case studies to demonstrate the real business benefits and cost savings enterprise can achieve by adopting a 21st century data archiving strategy.
