Why Archiving and Why Now? Michael Ivanov Sr. Director - Archiving Commvault October 2007
The Evolution of Archiving n Archiving for Storage Management Users want to keep data forever! Keep backing up the same old data Over and over… n And over… and over…
The PST Problem n Mailbox quotas created to manage database size for DR Mailbox Quotas = Personal Stores (PST Files) Users don’t delete ! n Original PST files were management issue (2GB limit) n New PST file issues Damaged, Lost, Stolen Laptops n Not backed up n IP leakage risk Where are the files? Server? Desktop? Laptop? How many files are out there? What’s in those files? It’s the PST file you don’t know about that has the smoking gun! PST PST

How do I prepare?
Archiving Considerations Delete n Storage Management – Move from expensive primary storage to lower cost secondary storage What about when secondary storage gets too large? n What about other data types? n What about backup? Where are your tapes? n What about search/discovery? Not just the archive, but backups and live content… n Can you ensure proper disposition across all media? n Can you perform a legal hold effectively? File & PrintDocumentManagement Archive Tape Tape
How to Manage Retention n User in Control n Mostly Dispersed n Often Duplicated n Sometimes Deleted n Difficult to Manage n Difficult to ProtectOfficeDocuments Internet Media Fax / Scanned Images / Video Policies ApplicationDatabases File & PrintDocumentManagementDelete Mr & Ms user Management
How do you mitigate your risk? n What is a “document?” s, File System Data, Document Repositories n Where is the “document?” Online, Archive, Backup n This will impact IT… 100% of the time! Be prepared! What data do you have? What format is it in? What are your retention policies? How do you perform an effective litigation hold? How do you search the data? How do you enable Legal to search the data? n Engage with Legal to understand company policy They don’t know what they don’t know You have to implement the policy ultimately n Longer Retention Periods = More Storage More Storage = More Power, Cooling, Space, etc. More Storage = Tiered Storage!
Summary n Archiving for Storage Management Free up expensive production disk storage Reduce backup windows Reduce recovery times n Archiving for Legal Discovery / Compliance Make sure to capture the data in the first place Proper retention / disposition management n Not just Archive, but Backup as well Litigation hold procedures How quickly can you perform a legal discovery? How comprehensive is your legal discovery? Be prepared!
