Information lifecycle management

Information is an important resource for organizations. It has significance from the business generation perspective and also from the point of view of legal mandates regarding data retention. Regulations can require the retention of transactional data for large periods of time. This data, which is inactive and is stored purely for compliance purposes, can put severe strain on the storage infrastructure and slow down data access.
