File Archiving – From Photographers to IT Managers

Your holiday photos are part of big data.

Peter Sweeney – Waterford Technologies

Many years ago when I was young, I spent hours annoying my mother with sinks full of chemicals trying to keep them around 40 degrees to process my colour slide films. The bathroom shower rail was a hanger for numerous strips of drying film.  I had a couple of cameras and a range of lenses and as a hobby it was all consuming.  I carried my Nikon F2 around absolutely everywhere like a battered war correspondent.File Archiving

Who should be looking at and considering email & file archiving?

File archiving is a valuable tool for any organisation that needs to free up storage capacity – moving unused data off of active storage systems.

For example, you may not know if you’ll need a piece of data in five years or from five years ago, but you know cannot delete it either, so you place the data into a long-term storage system where it’s accessible if needed. That long-term storage is the archive. Design documents, software builds and images are just a few of the data types that are often relegated to archives.

Would You Keep Your Old Clothes in a Bank Vault?

It might seem like an odd question, but there is an equivalent in the world of IT.

Peter Sweeney- Waterford Technologies

You probably wouldn’t do this as the cost hugely outweighs the value of the items concerned.   Most people, if they were honest, would have to say that their wardrobes are full of stuff that they are never going to wear again but just can’t get around to sending the clothes to recycling or the charity shop.  There is always an element of “what if I need it one day”, nagging away at the back of their minds.

So Why Buy a Bigger Box?

Cillian Sweeney- Waterford Technologies

Is buying a bigger box always the solution to a file management problem?

It’s no surprise for you to hear that the volumes of data within organisations are growing exponentially year on year. I mean just a few years ago it was nigh on impossible to send a 1 MB attachment with an email as it would either (i) crash the email system in place or (ii) if not, certainly incur the wrath of the IT Manager.
