For most companies some form of data archiving -- email, database, application or file system -- is the key element in their data retention operations. Archivers do a great job of helping to ensure that information is available when needed to respond to eDiscovery or regulatory compliance requirements. But archivers require considerable management and administration, and can also gobble up significant disk capacity. Online -- or "cloud" -- archiving services can relieve companies of many of these headaches while providing similar capabilities.

In this presentation, we assess online archiving, rating their advantages/disadvantages compared to deploying your own archivers. Topics include:

  • Do online services really provide comparable features
  • How effective and practical are these services when data must be retrieved
  • Scalability of online archivers
  • Data security
  • Management
  • Costs
