Profiling unstructured data to streamline storage management

Jim McGann, vice president, Index Engines | June 24, 2013
New data profiling technology makes it possible for organizations to reclaim storage capacity, archive data with business value, delete aged and abandoned data with no business value, tier content to other classes of storage and even manage storage charge backs with reliable statistics.

Through this process, mystery and legacy data that was once difficult to understand can now been deciphered. Accurate charge backs can now occur among the business units. Data center migrations can be streamlined by purging content with no business value and not ever moving it to the new platform.

Unstructured files and email that once presented a compliance risk and a storage nightmare can be reviewed and disposition decided. Some will move to archive, other to less expensive storage and a shocking amount of duplicates, personal files and aged data can be purged.
