Strategies for Archiving in Hybrid Environments

SUMMARY

The generation and storage of a growing amount of electronic content is moving to the cloud and IT decision makers expect the majority of archived content to be in the cloud within the next 24 months. Many organizations are considering a hybrid archiving solution, using a combination of on-premises and cloud-based archiving solutions in order to reduce their cost of archiving content, optimize bandwidth use, and to develop a unified approach to archiving.
