History has a way of repeating itself.
As email use proliferated in the mid-1990s, the volume grew to the point where email servers buckled and IT organizations had to grapple the need to:
• Maintain server performance and data-recovery time while an enormous volume of email sat on the production server
• Back up exponentially increasing amounts of data
• Perform time-consuming and expensive restoration of back-up tapes in response to discovery requests
These challenges led many organizations to email archiving. Currently, a similar story is playing out with Microsoft SharePoint Server, which brings a new level of structure to high-volume, user-generated content that, until recently had simply been dumped onto network file shares.
As SharePoint continues to gain traction, organizations want to avoid the mistakes they made with email and instead proactively take control of SharePoint content before it takes control of them. As a result, many look to SharePoint archiving early in the process
• to enable storage management on the production SharePoint system
• for flexible and granular recovery of SharePoint content and data
• for centralized retention management and eDiscovery
