Studies show that up to 90% of data on network-attached storage (NAS) is never accessed — and it’s costing users a fortune. Aside from incurring management and data protection costs, this cold, dormant data is needlessly tying up expensive storage that could be used for business-critical active data.
It doesn’t have to be this way. With zero impact on applications, Scality NAS Archiver seamlessly and transparently allows you to:
Reclaim premium primary storage capacity
Cut down the backup footprint (and burden) required to protect data on the NAS
Achieve compelling TCO savings
Improve long-term data durability
Up to 90% of data is inactive yet still using premium storage capacity and being backed up continuously. Scality’s intelligent file archiving system maximizes the value of existing primary storage by removing the burden of wasted space and compromised performance.
NAS Archiver creates a seamless connection between your primary storage and Scality RING, moving terabytes of data with stubs maintained on the NAS to preserve transparent access to these files. Users can retrieve archived data seamlessly, via an active stub, so there’s no access delay or performance hit.
By leveraging intelligent policies that move files and entire partitions from the primary tier, valuable space is saved and system performance is improved with a “set it and forget it” level of reliability.
