Our archive solutions

Many organisations finding the sheer quantity of their file data is a challenge – with up to 80% of it being cold and inactive, no longer providing value for staff or customers yet filling costly storage platforms, extending backup windows and consuming DR replication bandwidth. Our managed archive service lets you free up your primary storage by archiving file data that isn’t frequently accessed, with invisible recall, allowing you to streamline your file storage without negatively affecting your users.

Why Proact?

We have been delivering file archiving, alongside our ‘Backup as a service – Enterprise’ solution, for ten years. These services use the same technology (Commvault) and allow our customers to benefit from a complete data protection and storage optimisation solution. We monitor and manage the service 24/7 according to SLAs that guarantee availability and response times to your requests.
