The challenge of managing growing storage volumes
The rapid rate of data growth, along with the increasing importance of business information, is presenting significant challenges for organisations when it comes to the ability to manage, protect and recover data from their corporate systems. Key challenges include:
- Growing data volumes on Exchange, File and SharePoint servers are putting pressure on existing management, infrastructure and IT budget resources.
- Protecting and recovering this corporate data in a reliable, timely and cost effective manner has become increasingly difficult.
- Emerging compliance obligations require assurance that corporate email and file data has been captured, and that the business can effectively search, find and retrieve historical information.
These challenges have put pressure on IT Managers and CIOs to look for more effective strategies to manage the way their organisations handle the long term management of their corporate data.
Regain control of your Email, File and SharePoint Data with ArchiveReady
Global Storage’s Enterprise Managed Archival Service, ArchiveReady, allows organisations to regain control of rapidly growing Microsoft Exchange, Windows File and SharePoint servers. Working with the organisation to define a corporate archival policy, Global Storage delivers an intelligent multi-tiered approach to storing, managing and recovering corporate data that delivers tangible efficiency and cost benefits.
By archiving historical data off primary Exchange, File and SharePoint servers, ArchiveReady frees up primary SAN capacity, reduces backup windows, and dramatically improves server performance. This significantly reduces the amount of infrastructure and IT staff resources needed to manage an organisations data assets.
Email, File and SharePoint content is captured, indexed and archived to a local on-line ArchiveReady appliance where it is made available through powerful search and e-discovery software for immediate retrieval. Additionally, data is securely replicated off-site to Global Storage’s secure vaulting facility eliminating the need for local backup of this data and also providing full disaster recovery of Exchange, File and SharePoint content.
ArchiveReady protects against data loss by providing granular self-service recovery of Individual email messages and administrator level recovery of mailbox and information stores for Exchange. ArchiveReady also provides both fine and coarse grain recovery of SharePoint content, databases and index files.

ArchiveReady is delivered as a fully managed service with a ‘Pay-as-you-go’ charging model, so you only pay for the data you actually archive. This reduces the initial upfront CAPEX cost usually associated with archival solutions which can be cost prohibitive for some organisations.
