Perspective instead of mountains of data Is that us, or can it go away?

Finally control over your own File storage

Employee can from now on Automatically initiate clean-up processes or mark areas that are to be automatically kept clean via a retention policy.

In other words: the departments decide whether this is really theirs Ddata are and whether you need them. Otherwise it can go away!

Old folders and files then disappear from view and reveal the data that you really need.

Find files faster

The biggest cost factor of file servers is the speed with which users can access the data they need. Thousands of files in many folders and subfolders are distributed, make the work with the file system accordingly more confusing, slower and more error-prone. If the user has found the file he is looking for with great difficulty, he places it in a folder for security, which seems more intuitive to him and at the same time generates more chaos and redundant data.

... and have more time for important tasks


200 days * 1h * 40 € * 1.000 MA = 8.000.000 €

Calculated loss per year at 1.000 MA due to inefficient work with the file system according to Gartner.

How first-level archiving with data retention works

migRaven.24/7 Data Retention ...

separated all outdated data and at the same time lets the user work faster with the current, productive data! Created for this purpose migRaven.24/7 a simplified, clear folder structure with only current data, which the Efficiency in dealing with the file system significantly increases.

Missing files, the user without detours retrieve. Along with regulated access permissions, working with the productive file system more efficient and safer.

In comparison: classic archiving

addressed on the other hand, the reduction of storage costs by shifting the old data to cheaper storage media (HSM - hierarchical storage management). But storage is a minor IT problem in terms of cost.

Pure archiving usually offers no appreciable increase the overview, none Simplification, ie flattening, of folder structures and eRr no right revision and consolidation of access rights. There is thus no appreciable increase in efficiency on the file system.

Spontaneous or regularly? Two use cases for data separation

Ad hoc Data Retention - sort out data without regrets  
Ad hoc Data Retention enables employees to remove files from the production system with just a few clicks via a web interface.

Data Retention Policies - Retire data on a rule-based basis
Using data retention policies, old and obsolete data is continuously being removed from the productive area in an automated way in order to permanently preserve the advantages of a tidy file system.

By breaking down the age of the data, hidden data mountains can be found.

For example, the Data Retention Policy globally defines the time period, frequency, and location of the data separation.

Employees can use Ad Hoc Data Retention to clean up their own directory areas without "separation pain" ...

... the data owner applies the retention policy individually to the directories he / she chooses.
