Data Management Glossary
Egress costs are the network fees most cloud providers charge to move your data out of the cloud. Most allow you to move your data into the cloud for free (ingress). It’s important to understand ingress and egress fees when moving data to the cloud. If you have moved data to cold storage in the cloud for archiving purposes but users recall it more than expected, you may incur hefty egress costs. Egress fees also happen when data is pulled out of cloud storage for use in analytics applications and to transfer data to another cloud region or cloud service.
In the post 5 Tips to Optimize Your Unstructured Data, a key benefit of embracing open, standards-based unstructured data management is that organizations can do whatever they need to do with their file and object data data without paying licensing penalties and costs, such as for a third-party cloud file system or unnecessary cloud-egress fees. Komprise moves and manages unstructured data in native format in each tier, which means you can directly access the data and use all the cloud data services on your data without having to pay a data management or storage vendor. Avoiding these costs, including egress costs, is a priority for IT leaders surveyed by Komprise. Read the report: State of Unstructured Data Management.

The Benefits of Cloud Native Access
In this webinar, Komprise leaders review the importance of cloud native data access and maximizing the potential of your data in terms of access, efficiency and data services. When you move data in cloud native format, your users should be able to access the data not only as a file, but also as a native object—which is necessary for leveraging cloud-native analytics and other services. Access to your data should not have to go through your file storage layer, as this incurs licensing fees and requires adequate capacity.
