Legacy Database Application Retirement and Archiving

Retire aging database applications for cost savings or archive older database records to free up space and increase application performance.


Many companies find themselves spending large sums of money on keeping aging database applications available simply because of regulatory compliance or litigation support (eDiscovery) needs. Besides costing a lot, they also consume resources that could be freed up for higher priority projects.

Other companies find their database applications are suffering lower performance levels due to the size of the records database.

More effectively manage your database applications by archiving and managing data no longer needed while maintaining compliance and litigation preparedness with Archive2Azure for Databases.

Database Application Retirement

Application retirement is a sure way to lower overall costs, including resource requirements. Companies have found that archiving legacy application data is a sure way to avoid regulatory compliance and eDiscovery issues later on.

The Archive2Azure for Databases solution addresses this issue directly by providing for the archiving of entire databases. With database archiving, legacy applications can be retired without rising compliance and legal issues. Archived data can be assembled and rendered in definable, easily readable formats with the help of the Time Machine function. The Time Machine capability lets you assemble and render data as it was on specific dates in the past. This means that legacy applications can be completely retired without raising compliance or eDiscovery risk.

Database Records Archiving

Another issue company’s face is slowing performance levels of their active database applications due to the number of records stored in the database. As the database grows in size with aging and unneeded data, database servers can get bogged down and slow causing processes to take much longer.

The Archive2Azure for Databases solution enables IT to set policies to automatically move unneeded, aging data to the company’s Azure tenancy managed by the Archive2Azure solution. Archive2Azure provides security, information governance, and reporting so that compliance and eDiscovery issues are avoided.
