Data Archiving is the process of moving data that is no longer actively used to a separate storage device for long-term retention. Archive data consists of older data that is still important to the organization and may be needed for future reference, as well as data that must be retained for regulatory compliance
Removing infrequently used data from computer hard drives will help systems run faster and make current files easier to locate
Automated archiving can help lower future backup and storage costs by reducing administrative overhead
cloud-based platform also enables customers to keep data as long as they want by providing them with specific Recovery Point Objectives
SmartDocs SmartStore Solution delivers a simpler way to free up storage space in SAP (content offloading), improves response time and system availability and solves performance issues caused by large volumes of database tables or old transaction data.
If you plan to do a system conversion to SAP S/4 HANA, you will benefit from data archiving before migrating to SAP HANA as it reduces the memory of your database
In the spirit of digitization initiatives taken by organizations across the length and breadth of the company which results in exponential growth of the data/documents of the SAP Systems. It is now a necessity more than a requirement to manage this data effectively keeping in mind scalability, performance, risks, and costs. For administrators to decide which data to keep and what to remove is a time-consuming task which needs help and effective tools. SmarDocs implementation covers these various finer details and works with the organization to identify and accomplish effective archiving.
Archive your business critical data in the cloud , A cloud archive is a storage as a service for long-term data retention. The archive holds data that is infrequently accessed, and may be optimized for security and compliance with data regulation policies , Storing archived data in the cloud can be cost-effective when compared with storing and maintaining large amounts of nonessential data in-house.
Data archive reduces the size of your database, keeps it manageable in the long term and allows you to control the data growth of your SAP applications
Reducing your database size will reduce the amount of transactions for your CPUs to process and freeing up space on
Reducing space on the system will improve system response time and run more efficiently for longer.
With more data to process, you’ll require additional CPUs, resulting in additional hardware, maintenance and storage costs. Minimize excessive growth and nonessential infrastructure costs by archiving your SAP data into more cost-effective, long-term storage devices.
