HOT COLD FROZEN DATA

GRIP ON DATA

The world stores more and more data. On local drives and shares, on premise and in the cloud. Cost, Risk and CO2 exhaust getting out of control/grip.

  • Average 40% cost reduction on storage cost
  • Average 40% cost reduction on Cloud storage cost
  • Reduce risks through insight
  • Improve CO2 footprint significantly
  • Find hidden treasures in your data

How to know what data you stored the last decades, how to know if frequently used (hot) files are stored in the right save place, how to know if files never used anymore (frozen) are not stored too expensive.

GET HOT DATA FROZEN

With our client-based application we securely measure only the meta data of your data internally. After that we do an analysis, make a clear report and give specific advice.
So you can save costs, avoid risks and reduce your CO2 footprint.

Information Technology

Storage spending is still increasing, despite decreasing cost per GB. Discover what you can save by differentiating to Hot, Cold Frozen data, based on actual file usage. 
 

IT Strategy

  • Total storage analyses (GB/TB/PB per drive, on premise/cloud/local/share)
  • Potential savings by differentiating to HOT COLD FROZEN storage – Only frequently used files stored on expensive storage classes. (On premise and in the cloud)
  • Achievable and feasible savings on cloud storage (Storage and network)
  • Predictions on cloud storage cost (Storage and network)

Risk Management

Are files properly used. Are there patterns you should be aware of? Discover the insight in unknown risks related to deviant behaviour and unsafe storage of vital files. 

Risk Management

  • Insight in deviant usage patterns
  • Insight in unsafe storage of vital files
  • Insight in missing files in selected locations

Information Management

On average 15-20% of all information is properly archived. Discover what files are not yet covered by your archiving systems and use our scan to support your enduser to get it there.

IM Strategy

  • Total overview of all files in all folders on all drives including cloud
  • Stepstone information for initial gathering, arranging and archiving information.
  • Input for localizing specific files, ‘we are looking for something, but we don’t know what to search for specifically’
  • Double files and minima
  • l different files, identification

Corporate Social Responsibility / IT CO2 Footprint

Data storage uses masses of energy.
Discover to what extend CO2 exhaust can be reduced, with consistent functionality. 

Corporate Social Responsibility / CO2 Footprint

  • Estimated energy usage based on storage- and data-usage (Energy and Emission cost)
  • Saving potential in a HOTCOLDFROZENDATA strategy. (Energy and Emission cost)

WHAT IS HOTCOLDFROZENDATA?

We’re investigating the following types of data:

  • HOT DATA, is opened and changed every day
  • COLD DATA, is opened and changed once in a while
  • FROZEN DATA, almost never opened again

WHY FROZEN DATA?

Gain insight into the optimization possibilities of your data storage, because:

  • FROZEN DATA is a factor 25 cheaper than HOT DATA.
  • FROZEN DATA has a lower energy consumption than HOT DATA.
