File & Storage Analysis
Storage and Backup can require significant infrastructure and expenditure for larger organisations. File systems can hold terabytes of data and outsourced backup solutions can be expensive. Data files may be duplicated many times, unused data may be stored for extended amounts of time, or the backup strategy may not be optimal.
The Storage and Backup Analysis Service is aimed at analysing the data held in your file systems and looking for significant potential efficiencies. Benefits can include:
- De-duplication of files. Some files may be duplicated 100's of times.
- Identify and archive unused and untouched files. Up to 30%+ of data may be stale.
- Recommendation of better backup strategies, including compression, de-duplication and cost reduction. See also the Cost Reduction service for analysis of outsouced billing.
