Data creation, storage, access requirements, and cyber threats are growing at rates that outpace IT budgets. No single vendor has the complete product set or resources to solve these evolving data access demands. Active archiving has emerged as an effective approach to meeting these data management challenges.
The heart of the active archive solution is an intelligent management layer, which provides views of data stored on multiple platforms as a virtual data repository. The software monitors and may migrate archival data across cost-effective storage tiers while maintaining accessibility and enhancing cybersecurity.
Why Active Archiving?
- Users leverage active archive strategies to gain efficient access to data throughout its life
- An active archive strategy can be compatible with any storage type
- Users utilize active archives to manage data across appropriate storage tiers to minimize cost while maintaining ease of user accessibility
- Organizations can deploy an active archive strategy to strengthen their data protection and help protect against ransomware
Two-hour Virtual Conference on The Active Archiving Ecosystem
“The Active Archiving Ecosystem” is the 2022 conference of the Active Archive Alliance (AAA), a multi-vendor alliance of solution providers that enable organizations to manage and monetize data at scale while reducing overall storage costs and enhancing cyber resilience.
In just two hours, business leaders and IT staff will learn how to take control of data accessibility, cost, and security by building a flexible archival repository.
Three Fast-paced Sessions
DCIG will moderate three fast-paced discussions where AAA participants will share best practices and answer your data management questions. The virtual conference is September 22, 2022 from 11:00 – 13:00 AM Eastern Time (08:00 – 10:00 Pacific Time)
Session 1: The Big Three (Accessibility, Cost, Cybersecurity)
Archival data must remain accessible for productivity, legal, business value, analytics, and compliance. IT needs to secure that data against ransomware and other types of cyberattacks. And IT needs to do all this at reasonable costs, even given extraordinary projected data growth – during this session we discuss ‘the big three’ – access, cost, and security.
Session 2: Creating the Technology Ecosystem (Tape, disk, optical, cloud, software)
An active archive easily includes data centers, remote locations, and the cloud; SSD, HDD, tape, and optical; block, object, and file storage. This session will highlight the technologies and solutions that comprise an active archive.
Session 3: Evolving Active Archives
Active Archiving technology is constantly evolving to meet marketplace demands. Top archiving innovations include Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML), sustainability, analytics, and compliance. We’ll explore the newest advancements and applications for active archives.
