Retaining data is about more than compliance, now organizations want to keep data sets because they can leverage them to make better decisions or re-sell that data. In short there is money in the data; but you have to have it to monetize it.
This webinar will cover the cost of storing large data sets for very long periods of time – essentially forever – and the challenges this brings in terms of data safety and ongoing physical costs. It is more that the physical cost per GB, it is the cost to sustain those GBs over time.
Storage Switzerland opens the presentation with a discussion about why companies are storing data longer and how object storage is helping but isn’t the complete answer. Storage Switzerland will also discuss the pros and cons of object storage and explore efficient disk storage and tape as a potential compliment. Then special guest Molly Rector, Chief Marketing Officer at Spectra Logic describes how their new BlackPearl appliance with the DS3 interface brings tape into the Object/REST world and how it addresses the issues of bulk data handling and the ‘cost of forever’.
