High performance access to file storage

Experts Compliance. Was there ever a word to strike such terror into the heart of the average techie? (OK, “Audit”. But don’t blame us, we didn’t want to say it…)

Juggling the often conflicting requirements of your budget and compliance is enough to give anyone a headache. So help us out with a question, if you would be so good.

Email, as you know, clogs up your storage boxes like nothing else. And if your policy is “hang on to it, you never know when you might need it” you could find yourself buying storage like it is going out of fashion. But is any other policy safe?

To sum up: Data retention is an increasingly complicated area. How do you make sure you are covered, without blowing your storage budget?

If you have some useful thoughts, please share them in the comments. If you don’t have any ideas, perhaps you’ll vote for the comments you think are best. We’ll be in touch with the “winner” to get a more in depth view.
