Why do organisations store information?
To manage business process? Fuelling corporate intelligence? For compliance? … or ‘just because we do’?
We all recognise that information is a precious asset.
And we know that information is growing at an unprecedented rate; while the volume of information increases, it also comes in an ever-increasing variety of types, from more sources than ever before and the overall rate of growth is accelerating.
All of this is driving increased storage costs, but we can’t increase storage indefinitely.
Increasing data volume is not the only issue…
Increasingly we find that substantial volumes of data are of little use to the organisation, AND can contain information which increases risk, limits security and could be damaging.
This is where Storage Optimisation comes in.
