Case Study A – How much of 3TB can be saved?

File Servers

Customer A has a cluster of 5 file servers with about 4 million files with just over 3TB data. Using FileArchiver the following was identified:

  • 1.5TB of jpg docs & PDFs alone, were not recently modified  – by implementing a 12 month stubbing policy, 1.2TB of server space was saved just based on these 3 extensions.
  • Duplication amounted to 20% of total data – by de-duping, a further 600GB of space  was reduced.
  • In real terms an 80% reduction in server space was achieved in total.
