Acaveo Smart Information Server: Bringing Dark Data into Light

In 2009, a fully burdened computing infrastructure figured storage at about 20% of all components.  By 2015, we’ve surged to 40% storage in the infrastructure (and counting) as companies pour in more and more data. And most of this data is hard-to-manage unstructured data, which typically represents 75%-80% of corporate data. This burdened IT infrastructure presents two broad and serious consequences: it increases capital and operating expenses, and cripples unstructured data management.  Capital and operating expenses scale up sharply with the swelling storage tide. Today’s storage costs alone include buying and deploying storage for file shares, email, and ECMs like SharePoint. Additional services such as third-party file sharing services and cloud-based storage add to cost and complexity.

And growing storage and complexity make managing unstructured data extraordinarily difficult. A digital world is delivering more data to more applications than ever before. IT’s inability to visualize and act upon widely distributed data impacts retention, compliance, value, and security. In fact, this visibility (or invisibility) problem is so prevalent that it has gained it own stage name: dark data. Dark data plagues IT with hard-to-answer questions: What data is on those repositories? How old is it? What application does it belong to? Which users can access it?

IT may be able to answer those questions on a single storage system with file management tools. But across a massive storage infrastructure including the cloud? No. Instead, IT must do what it can to tier aging data, to safely delete when possible, and try to keep up with application storage demands across the map. The status quo is not going to get any better in the face of data growth. Data is growing at 55% and higher per year in the enterprise. The energy ramifications alone of storing that much data are sobering. Data growth is getting to the point that it is overrunning the storage budget’s capacity to pay for it. And managing that data for cost control and business processes is harder still.

Conventional wisdom would have IT simply move data to the cloud. But conventional wisdom is mistaken. The problem is not how to store all of that data – IT can solve that problem with a cloud subscription. The problem is that once stored, IT lacks the tools to intelligently manage that data where it resides.

This is where highly scalable, unstructured file management comes into the picture: the ability to find, classify, and act upon files spread throughout the storage universe. In this Product Profile we’ll present Acaveo, a file management platform that discovers and acts on data-in-place, and federates classification and search activities across the enterprise storage infrastructure. The result is highly intelligent and highly scalable file management that cuts cost and adds value to business processes across the enterprise.

Understand Your Data to Reduce Storage Costs, Enhance Security

If you don't know what data is in your file servers, email and collaboration systems - who owns and has access to what, what data is "hot" versus "cold", or how things are classified - then you are missing easy opportunities to reduce storage costs!

Manage Unstructured Data: File Analysis at Scale

Active data is relatively visible and manageable on production systems but the longer data ages, the less visible it becomes to users and processes.
