Archive as a Service

Save up to 60% on your archiving costs

Let us take care of it quickly, simply & affordably

With the amount of data you have to store growing, and with retention periods lengthening, your need to archive increases all the time. Traditionally, this has been seen as prohibitively expensive. But our Archive as a Service will rid you of the stale data that's clogging up your primary storage, automatically and affordably, and help you avoid forced, expensive upgrades as systems fill up.

What is Archive as a Service?

What is Archive as a Service?

Archive as a Service (AaaS) is a cost-effective, cloud-based service that moves unimportant email and file data out of your data centre and into ours, meaning you only have to house your valuable information. Whilst traditional archiving can be prohibitively expensive, AaaS is charged per GB, with savings of 60% being typical.

A complete solution

A complete solution

AaaS automatically and seamlessly archives stale data. It's a complete solution, in that it consists of a media server (physical or virtual), networking, software, storage and secure encryption. We can deploy it in your data centre or in one of ours. And we can guarantee its underlying platform is secure, available and flexible.

Archiving assessment

Archiving assessment

We'll conduct an assessment to highlight suitable data. This will include a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) report, showing just how much value AaaS can bring. We'll then work with you to define a solution that suits your needs. We can design policies around file size, type and last modified date, with specified file/path inclusion/exclusions. We'll also look at your secondary copy and indexing options, to ensure your data's always easily recoverable.

Archive management portal
