Archive as a Service

Maximise investment by archiving low value data simply and quickly

Archive as a Service (AaaS) is a cost-effective archival service that moves stale email and file data out of your datacentre and into ours, leaving your valuable IT investments to hold only your valuable data.With data growing and retention periods lengthening, the need for archive is increasing. Traditionally cost-prohibitive, AaaS is charged at a cost per GB and requires little or no infrastructure investment. Management is reduced and cost savings of 60% are typical.

Our simple Archival Assessment highlights data ready for archive and a Total Cost of Ownership report shows just how much value AaaS brings to your business..
