Data Management

A data storage environment can be like a spoiled brat. You no sooner buy it more storage than it starts demanding yet more, more, more! … and you have a sneaking suspicion it’s not even really using the storage it already has. What you need is an effective data management solution that makes sure storage is being consumed in a smart way. In an environment filled with unstructured data, the solution of choice is Rocket Arkivio Autostor. Arkivio streamlines processes, too–a bratty storage environment probably isn’t doing routine procedures as quickly as it should, but Arkivio is a complete intelligent data management solution that does it all, from compliance to retention management.

 

Data collection for intelligent data management

Rocket Arkivio Autostor collects data about your environment. It can be scheduled to run or it can be run manually. It can also be configured to run only on specified servers. Information such as file size, type, last modified date, and last accessed date is collected. Server information, such as capacity and available storage, is also collected. Arkivio is agentless, so the impact is minimal.

 

Rocket Arkivio Autostor makes intelligent storage decisions

Rocket Arkivio Autostor intelligently groups the collected data, making it easier to apply policies or changes to an entire category. It analyzes how important the data is to the business and uses this information as well as the categorization information to optimize storage resources. The Arkivio Policy Engine uses an algorithm to select files to move based on characteristics such as age, date last modified, and business value.

 

Processes can be automated

One of the most effective ways of improving a data environment is to automate processes. Rocket Arkivio Autostor automates processes such as migration, retention, copying, and moving. It monitors the environment and issues alerts–for instance, when a volume’s capacity is reaching the administrator-defined limit.

Arkivio migrates files in one of two different ways. After tag migration, accessing the file that has been migrated will either restore the file to its original location or allow the file to be read directly. Link migration moves the file but provides direct read access from the original location. These migrations are always transparent to the user.

 

Changing something? Try it before you buy it

Rocket Arkivio Autostor allows you to simulate the results of new data management policies in order to understand all the implications and impacts of the proposed changes. Simulations even indicate which individual files will be moved. They can be run quickly and produce the same reports that they would produce as implemented updates.

 

Insightful reporting

Advanced reporting assists in data management, analysis, and capacity planning, and it provides a complete view of storage. Rocket Arkivio Autostor classifies and prioritizes data and the storage where it resides.

Good data management directly affects ROI. Arkivio provides everything necessary to better understand and manage data. It assists in reclaiming unused storage, supports compliance, optimizes processes, and analyzes data consumption. It’s data discovery, data management, reporting, and data classification, all in one easy-to-install solution.
