Archive Data and Improve Application Efficiency

Archive data to control exploding volumes and to make applications more efficient

Primary tab navigation

In the era of Big Data, more data is a good thing; it presents companies with previously unseen opportunities. However, the data explosion can have its downside too. Organizations are increasingly challenged with successfully managing the ever increasing data deluge. Larger and larger amounts of data are stored in various data repositories across the enterprise which can negatively effect operations and cost.

If not managed properly, rampant data growth can impair the performance of mission-critical enterprise systems, OTLP applications, data warehouses and big data environments, jeopardizing the ability to service clients and meet service level agreements. It also can drive up costs as organizations add infrastructure to meet the performance demands of clients and business users.

InfoSphere Optim Archive is the proven, market leading data archive solution that solves the data growth problem at the source, reducing costs, improving performance and efficiency, and minimizing the risks associated with managing structured data throughout its lifetime.

Improve Performance and Efficiency:
With less data, system and application performance improves, reports, queries and batch processes run faster, and back-up and recovery processes run more efficiently.

Minimize Risks:
Intelligently archiving data out of productions systems allows for data retention compliance, but also supports a better long-term solution for storing application data by providing application-independent access to that data. Intelligent data archiving ensures that e-discovery and legal hold requirements can easily be met.

Reduce Costs:
With data archiving, infrequently used data from productions environments can be stored on less expensive storage, and can be compressed to save even more storage space.
