Long Term Retention (LTR)/Tape Replacement
All data centers today have backup processes in place, however two out of three have no specialized archiving processes in place, which accelerates primary storage grow - leading to higher storage costs and longer backup/recovery times. Those that do archive often continue to leverage existing backup processes for long-term data retention - backing up to tape and storing offsite for years These methodologies are not optimal for data center efficiencies, compliance or eDiscovery.
Customers should expect cloud archiving to be competitive on cost compared to using tape and in-house processes and to provide value-add functionality, such as: geographical redundancy, advanced search, media/content management.
