Enable Cost-Effective Retention of Archived Data

Messaging and files are among the fastest growing types of data within an IT environment. Not only are they heavily used by members of an organization, but external regulations, internal governance and budgets put demands on them as well. Today’s organizations are tasked to store significant amounts of content for longer periods, in different classes of storage than their original location, to achieve compliance, adhere to policies, all while saving money! Sounds challenging, right? With Veritas Enterprise Vault, customers can archive emails and files from primary storage and servers to a centrally managed archive repository.
