The quantity of data organizations are managing is growing at an alarming rate. Procuring more storage has been the simple answer to handle the growth; however, additional storage only temporarily treats the symptoms, not the underlying causes of the problem.
Increased data retention policies mandated by organizational, industry, and regulatory compliance standards is a primary contributor to data growth, but a lack of solutions to effectively clean-up stale and unneeded data has also exacerbated the issue as data is only being accumulated over time; not retired in conjunction with the data’s life cycle.
