We are living in an increasingly digital world, with more and more data being generated in businesses regardless of their shape and size.
In most cases the majority of that data being stored is aged, i.e. not actively being accessed, causing an imbalance between the cost of storage and potential value of the data being stored.
IT departments have, for some time, turned to tiering of their data storage infrastructure, using different storage mediums for different storage workloads; something that has only been increased by the advent of low cost Cloud storage infrastructure.
For many businesses, embarking on a migration to a Cloud storage infrastructure offers an opportunity to optimize their storage costs by rightsizing the volume of data that they store locally, as well as the volume of data that is stored in a Cloud (whether that is on-site or offsite).
The challenge for many however is gaining an accurate insight into their data, and building a data lifecycle policy that suits their business.
Nephos’ Smart File Audit gives that insight, using a combination of industry tool sets and real world experience to provide our customers with an accurate view of their data and how best to leverage Cloud storage infrastructure.
