Structured and Unstructured Data Retention Solution
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2014.11.1.art00009  Published OnlineJune 2014

Data Retention solutions are increasingly important as the world becomes more digital. These solutions help museums, national libraries, governments, educational institutions, and corporations world-wide capture and manage institutional assets. Data Retention provides a means of organizing institutional data while providing greater levels of access and controls.Today's Data Retention solutions must be extensible to meet the evolving business needs of Big Data and Cloud Computing. While Hierarchical Storage Solutions and tiered storage provide the most reliable and cost effective solution, access and performance requirements are also important design factors. If architected incorrectly, data searching and retrieval can be time consuming and costly. Traditional tape-only archival methods simply do not meet the access requirements of many of today's repositories and long-term archives. Likewise, storing all the data on disk requires greater administration and is more costly. The proposed Data Retention solution provides a proven solution with a balance between disk, tape, and cloud storage to support long term archiving of structured and unstructured data.
