Data Migration and Tiering

Massive volumes of unstructured user data have accumulated over decades. Amidst the relevant data, is a surplus of data no longer has business value, is redundant, or simply does not need to reside on primary storage any longer but can’t be purged. . Index Engines provides enterprise class indexing, classification, reporting and migration of unstructured files and email to support intelligent data management and cost reduction.

Data can quickly be classified based on value, and when necessary migrated to the appropriate storage tier including the cloud. Data that has outlived its value can be defensibly deleted.

Organizations can realize significant return on investment by reducing their primary data storage footprint and leveraging new and lower cost storage platforms.
