Define policy and preserve data from backup tape
Finding and preserving data of value into an archive is a challenge. Due to the dynamic nature of user content and the massive volumes being created, most organizations archive everything. This results in bloated and enormous archives that are difficult to manage. As a result legal and compliance teams cannot get access to the data they need when they need it.
Catalyst delivers a unique approach towards value-based archiving. Leveraging the backup process, a process that is already in place and finds all new and modified files and email nightly, data center managers can decide policy on what is to be extracted and preserved. Simply define a data policy, including user mailboxes, files, content based on metadata or keywords, and once the nightly backup occurs this responsive data will be extracted and preserved so that it is available to the business units that need it.
Catalyst allows organizations to save only what they need, and to make it available to those who need it. By leveraging the existing backup process Catalysts eliminates the need to crawl networks and servers to find and migrate data. Following a simple deployment, organizations can quickly define policy and determine what data to preserve in a value based archive.
