Migrating your unstructured data, both on-prem and to and from the cloud within budget and in a timely manner proves to be a challenge for organizations alike. Having a comprehensive and executable data management plan that is flexible enough to contend with the complexities of differing data storage configurations is key.
Handling of media assets across multiple storage locations, users, and groups continues to be a challenge in an ever-growing virtual world. With the advancement in cloud media AI and ML tools enabling media workflows in the cloud, understanding the time and expense to get content to and from the cloud can be a challenge for media organizations alike.
Research shows that a vast amount of unstructured data becomes “cold” after just a few short months, meaning the data has not been accessed and therefore should be placed on a less expensive tier of storage. The problem is that organizations treat all data the same, ultimately accruing unnecessary costs. A shift to a cloud-first storage policy has seen many organizations storing data on multiple tiers and/or multiple clouds. The challenge is knowing what user, group, or project owns what data and how much it will costs to store and access it. There are many choices for backup and archive that use dedupe and compression making the data unreadable in the archive.
