Automatically Archive Cold Data to the World’s Most Affordable Storage Cloud
Data growth is spiraling out of control, doubling every year for many companies. IT organizations are continuously expanding costly on-premises storage arrays to keep pace with skyrocketing data volumes, even though studies show 80 percent of data is rarely accessed within months of creation. Maintaining infrequently accessed data on primary storage squanders capacity and wastes money. It also extends backup cycles, leaving valuable business data unprotected. Certain cloud services are no better. They have complex and expensive tiers that often end up costing more than expected.
Wasabi has partnered with Komprise to help businesses slash storage costs and improve data protection. Wasabi hot cloud storage is incredibly affordable and fast cloud object storage for any purpose. And Komprise is an intelligent data management solution that lets you automatically find cold data across both on network-attached storage and in the cloud and archive it transparently to suit your needs. Through the integrated solution, users can seamlessly move infrequently accessed data to Wasabi to free up primary storage capacity, shrink backups, and better align storage costs with data value—all with no disruption to file based users or applications.
Komprise Seamlessly Archives Inactive Data
Komprise lets you identify cold data across all your network-attached (NFS, SMB/CIFS) and cloud-based storage and archive infrequently accessed data to Wasabi quickly and easily. In less than 15 minutes you can gain insights into data usage across your storage environment, perform a custom ROI analysis based on your policies and costs, and start intelligently moving data to Wasabi to free up primary storage capacity and improve recovery point and recovery time objectives. Users and applications access archived files the same way they access local files, with no changes to the user experience or toolsets. A unified administrative interface makes it easy to configure data management policies, analyze costs and plan capacity across on-prem and cloud storage platforms.
Unlike competitive solutions, Komprise does not employ static stubs or agents, which are proprietary and can be difficult to manage. Instead, Komprise manages data using standards-based protocols, helping you simplify operations and avoid vendor lock-in. Komprise archives data based on when it was last accessed rather than last modified, which is a better indicator of how often an object is accessed.
Komprise’s Intelligent Archiving Cuts NAS Costs by Over 80%
Migrating infrequently accessed data to the cloud will save your business money. On a per-GB basis, it is more expensive to keep data on NAS than in the cloud and the longer idle data is kept on local storage, the more it leeches on your wallet. By moving this expensive data out of local storage, the Komprise/Wasabi solution can save users an estimated 96% on storage costs with NAS to Cloud Transparent Active Archive.
For migrating data between clouds, Komprise provides the same, single-pane-of-glass experience. Data can be transferred to Wasabi just as if it was located on local storage. Komprise Intelligent Data Management analyzes your cloud-hosted data and provides actionable analytics to not only understand your cloud data costs but also how to optimize them with data lifecycle management.
