Existing and legacy backup and archive solutions were built with proprietary data formats that lock users in to those software applications forever. Aparavi has approached its active archive solution with a fundamentally different approach, providing more than one way for a user to access their archived data that is separate and distinct from the archiving application, and completely open, thereby enabling any user access to their data indefinitely and without constraint. With the open access approach archived data is immediately accessible, not just for retrieval or recovery, but as a data asset with access for secondary usage, such as business analytics or insight.

Many IT Planners look at the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as a distinctly European problem. The reality is the GDPR and regulations like it, impact businesses around the world. GDPR impacts any business that does business in the EU, and many countries are adopting legislation that is very similar to this regulation. In the US for example, California recently passed the Consumer Privacy Act, which has much in common with GDPR.

Aparavi software is available for installation on a wide variety of Linux distributions and all the latest Windows operating systems. Download the Compatibility Guide below for additional details.

Unstructured data has always been a sore spot for the data protection process. The growth in the number of files that make up unstructured data sets and the capacity that they consume now threatens to break the data protection model completely. Considering that every indicator suggests the growth in the unstructured data will not only continue but also accelerate IT needs a new strategy so it can stay ahead of the problem.

After reading this document, a software engineer with C++ coding skills will understand how Aparavi software stores archived data. With this knowledge you will be able to develop programs to read your organization’s archived data to reconstruct your archived files without the use of Aparavi’s web application.

Aparavi provides a new and much better way to look at data retention. Our SaaS-based active archive solution delivers true storage independence with on-premises and multi-cloud mobility. Drastically reducing the amount of storage required with patent-pending data pruning technology, we also ensure corporate governance. Our technology keeps data only for the period you need it and removes data after it has expired. Working across local and cloud storage destinations and with an open data format, we prevent vendor lock-in for long-term flexibility.
