of File Data Migration

file data management

Throughout history, data file storage patterns have become eerily predictable. Your company would designate a central silo to store user files, and as file data grew, you would add and save data until the silo was full ― then you’d purchase a bigger silo to add capacity. But the cost of this data management has become prohibitive to a point where you need a better solution.

Enter file data tiering and archiving, which helps you reduce the cost of file data storage and file data management.

Why is file data tiering and archiving important?

With file data archiving, you can designate how your data files are stored and where they are archived. Data archiving moves your files from primary to secondary and even tertiary storage levels automatically according to your preset archiving policies. After all, not all of your unstructured data files are of equal importance ― and industry statistics estimate that up to 80% will remain inactive after they are created. Given these numbers, why would you use your high-value primary storage to contain your low-value data files?

NTP Software’s VFM makes data archiving simple, seamless and automatic. It optimizes data migration by following the preset standards that you create based on storage events. With VFM, you avoid having to configure multiple solutions through many interfaces; VFM filters and moves your file data automatically in a way that is completely invisible to users. Its the ideal unstructured file data archiving software.
