What is Archive as a Service?

Archive as a Service (AaaS) is our managed archive solution that lets you free up your primary storage by archiving file data that isn’t necessarily frequently accessed. We monitor and manage 24/7, according to SLAs that guarantee availability and response times to your requests. The service delivers reliable archiving and recalling and is powered by Commvault technology.

Archiving & recalling

Archiving & recalling

Your solution will archive files automatically on a daily basis. AaaS archives file data from Windows file servers (physical or virtual) and certain NAS storage arrays (CIFS data only). The archived files are replaced with what’s known as stub files. These link to the original files, allowing your end users to continue to access the archived data as normal.
