Backup Lifecycle Management
Asigra recognizes that there are multiple tiers of backup of active data. Operationally critical data requires more frequent backups on higher performance devices. Less critical backups are relegated to less expensive, lower performance devices. Older versions of backup files are moved to slower devices to save costs.
Align the value of your information with the cost of protecting it.Years ago, we treated all data as being equal. All data originated on one type of storage and stayed there until it was deleted. We now understand that not all data is created equal. Some types of data are more important than others, or accessed more frequently than others. Data Lifecycle Management (DLM), a component of Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), defines the DLM concept where data is created on one storage system, then migrated to less expensive storage systems as it ages.
- Data that is 2 minutes old is highly valued.
- Data that is 2 months old may be of interest but is not as highly valued.
- Data that is 2 years old may be needed for records but it is not critical to the daily functioning of the company.
