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.

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 Architecture White Paper

Aparavi® Active Archive™ delivers intelligent multi-cloud data management to organization with large volumes of unstructured data. Our SaaS model, along with flexible, usage-based pricing, means easier and predictable costs and for a lower total-cost-of ownership. This paper explores how Aparavi Active Archive works and what typical data management scenarios look like.

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.

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.
