How Showback and Simplicity Get the Archiving Buy-In You Need
IT has had to plead with users to archive files—ANY files—to alleviate rapidly filling NAS. But with massive unstructured data growth and rising storage and backup costs, this bristly dynamic has to change.
Many companies are choosing a Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) approach to centralize IT’s efforts for each
department. But convincing department heads to care about storage savings is a tough task without the right tools. Data management and archiving is viewed by users as an extraneous hassle and potential disruption that fails to answer “What’s in it for me?”
This white paper explains how to make STaaS successful by telling a compelling data story department heads can’t ignore. This coupled with transparent data archiving techniques that do not change the user experience are critical to successful systematic archiving and significant savings.
Learn how using analytics-driven showback can help secure the buy-in needed to archive more data more often. Once they understand their data—how much is cold and how much they could be saving—the conversation quickly changes.
