DESCRIPTION

For many IT organizations there is simply too much file data to deal with. You may have some of the significant IT challenges, such as inadequate storage space, long backup and restore operations, limitations on available power and floor space, extended or even infinite retention periods, finding the right information in a timely manner, and more. The first step to controlling this file or "unstructured" data is intelligent archiving, which preserves access to data from its original location, and stores the data elsewhere. Storing that data in a platform that scales while consuming the least resources possible, protects and preserves data, makes it always available and easily accessible, and helps you extract value from previously "dark" data. View this webcast to learn how to: Reclaim or defer high performance storage purchases. Save more on all the costs of owning and maintaining growing content. Back up less data and reduce capacity needs. Set yourself up for whats next. For more information on Archive first please read: http://www.hds.com/assets/pdf/hitachi-datasheet-archive-first.pdf

  • 3. CUSTOMER CHALLENGES Reduce the cost of storing data? Reduce the cost of protecting data? Manage distributed IT more effectively? Mitigate data risk? Gain IT agility? How do I Do more with less? Archive first Back up less Consolidate more
  • 4. TYING IT ALL TOGETHER EDGE STORAGE ALTERNATE DATA CENTER REMOTE OFFICE APPLICATION APPLICATION APPLICATION HDDS SEARCH ACROSS THE POWER OF THE PORTFOLIO Reduce the cost of storing data Reduce the cost of protecting data Do more with less Archive first Back up less Consolidate more Reduce overall storage costs by reducing the load on primary storage by at least 40% Reduce licensing and management cost, complexity and backup by up to 75% Streamline backup and restore operations by 50-60% Improve reliability with >24x improvement in RPO, >30x improvement in RTO Eliminate silos, prevent sprawl, reduce complexity by 50% or moreSimplify management, improve data protection and reduce riskIdentify data at risk, ensure appropriate data access, simplify complianceReduce or eliminate CAPEX, simplify management, offload data from primary storage CLOUD STORAGE MOBILE WORKFORCE HUS FILE MODULE
  • 5. ARCHIVING BUSINESS CHALLENGES Unstructured data growth and management 75% to 90% of data is unstructured 50% of unstructured data is inactive after 6 months Requires unique capabilities for archive management Costs to maintain unstructured data Maintaining backups Recovery Space Power and cooling Resistance to change well be fine Adherence to compliance regulations and corporate governance to minimize risk Insure ready access Insure integrity Discovery Time is not on your side
  • 6. Ingest Applications Lack of scalability of silos No search across disparate storage systems Requires management for each silo Increased TCO No automated retention management Performance is affected when calls go to offline media Email Server Document Management General Accounting Web Applications Optical Jukebox Tape Library NAS RAID Array SMTP CIFS NFS HTTP ARCHIVE OPERATIONAL CHALLENGES: BREAKING UP LEGACY SILOS
  • 7. THE NEED FOR AN INTELLIGENT ARCHIVE STRATEGY A companys most valuable asset is we would like to think it is people, but people can leave. Data is a companys lifeblood Data must be retained and managed It must be protected, made available monetized? Information lives forever, governance is a must Are we prudent stewards? The concept applies to ALL companies enterprise, SMB, and even in the home That we havent been able to do this easily in the past is no reason to assume we cant now
  • 8. TAPE HAS SERVED AS THE ARCHIVE OF OLD For 62 years it has had its place serving the needs of storage, protection and archive Attractive price per unit of storage Portable Relatively stable But: We have accepted the challenges of tape. Why? Lost, broken or other wise unreadable data The recovery process the capacity of a tape has outstripped our ability to recover the data in a meaningful timeframe
  • 9. THE ROLE OF TAPE? The future we seek is extremely limited by tape technology It is offline: How do we index, mine, find value? Complexity of management overwhelms us Co-location of data Migration to whats next Tape has served as the archive of old, but falls short in meeting the needs of the intelligent archive http://blog.bandl.com/2011/06/16/why-there-is-no-excuse-for-missing-data- tapes/
  • 10. A FUTURE IN THE CLOUDS? The lure of the cloud Pay for what you use Cost per GB is hard to ignore As a service But pay to upload, pay to retrieve The process of Getting it to the cloud Getting it back Applying advanced capabilities Security, reliability, legalities
  • 11. THE DESIRE OF DATA Our storage should Scale and consume the least amount of resources possible Our data desires to be protected, preserved, available, accessible But how do you Migrate to whats next? Index it all? Govern? Monetize information?
  • 12. All data types, across applications Email Unstructured file Database Home-Grown Applications Communications Open protocols Any application that writes data can put it in the archive Protocols supported - REST - NFS, CIFS - SMTP - WebDAV File SystemsDocument management Email Search and Discover Laptop/ Workstation The Intelligent Archive: One Platform for all Types of Data
  • 13. HITACHI INTELLIGENT ARCHIVE USE CASES SUPPORTS MULTIPLE USES CASES WITHOUT CREATING SILOS Horizontal data protection and cloud enablement Vertical applications and workloads Examples include healthcare, life sciences, government, financial services, education Archiving Web 2.0 Data Protection Cloud Hitachi Enterprise Archive Solution Compliance E-discovery
  • 14. THE INTELLIGENT ARCHIVE IN USE AT HDS At HDS we journal every email into and out of HDS.com by making a copy of the message in our enterprise archive These messages are then indexed by Hitachi Data Discovery Suite (HDDS) and prepared for viewing by HDS Corporate Affairs division the real value from an internal investigative perspective (and from a potential litigation perspective) is the ability to be more nimble and eliminate the need for extensive and/or protracted investigations when unfounded allegations are made. HDDS is a direct interface between investigator and source material (such as email, attachments, etc.). It allows me to quickly triage allegations without involvement of IT resources, who typically need to retrieve tapes or other storage media, based on specific date ranges or other parameters. With HDDS I can perform multiple searches, casting as broad or as narrow a net as necessary, and obtain results on my desktop in a matter of minutes, not days, from anywhere I have a secure connection. This allows me to focus critical resources on areas where I have determined a need for more extensive investigations David Karas, vice president of ethics and business conduct, Hitachi Data Systems HDS IS NOT ONLY A BELIEVER IN THESE SOLUTIONS, WE ARE A USER
