Data Archiving


IBM is a leader in structured data archiving solutions.

InfoSphere Optim Archive enables organizations to intelligently archive data to reduce costs, improve performance and minimize risks. By archiving rarely accessed historical transactions, in a way that keeps the data in business context and maintains access to it, production systems perform better while meeting data retention requirements. Because InfoSphere Optim Archive can provide application-independent access, many organizations also use it to retire applications during application rationalization and modernization projects. This helps them to recognizing significant savings and simplifying their IT infrastructure.
