A Smart way to Manage Data Growth in Production Databases

Over time enterprise CRM, ERP and custom applications accumulate large amounts of data. It is observed that as much as 80% of this data is inactive or rarely accessed, yet it continues to stay in production databases clogging up expensive storage, backup and compute resources. Many enterprises do nothing about it due to the complexity involved in identifying the inactive data and the need to preserve it for compliance audits and other business uses.This continued presence of inactive data drives up infrastructure costs while diminishing application performance and productivity.

Solix database archiving has helped many enterprises across the world manage their growing databases efficiently without risking compliance and data availability. With pre-built support for many popular pre-packaged CRM & ERP applications Solix database archiving offers enterprises the ability to identify inactive data efficiently and move it to low-cost infrastructures while preserving data integrity and access. Further, due to its comprehensive support for data retention, legal hold, role-based access, and audit control, Solix has emerged as a default choice for many organizations looking to improve application performance while meeting stringent data retention and legal requirements.

Solix Database Archiving


  • Smart Tiered Archiving with Secure Access

    Quickly identify inactive data from your production applications, and ‘move’ it to a secure near-line archive with data integrity and access preserved. This offers the ability to improve application performance, while retaining access to archived data from native applications. As data becomes older (ex: beyond 3 years), archived data can be moved further down to low cost object storage for higher savings. Users can access this data using the full-text search, forms, queries, and reports offered by Solix.

  • E-Discovery & Legal Hold

    Compliance and legal professionals can quickly identify and retrieve records to meet data requests from regulatory bodies and law enforcement. Further, they can place legal holds on records of interest to ensure such data is retained beyond the pre-defined data retention periods to comply with legal proceedings.

  • Support for Multiple Applications & Databases

    Includes pre-populated and customizable metadata knowledge bases for many popular ERP applications including Oracle Apps, SAP, Peoplesoft, JDEdwards, Siebel and Baan. It also supports custom applications built on popular RDBMS such as Oracle SQL, MySQL, MSSQL, Sybase, DB2.

  • Policy-Based Data Retention for Compliance

    Retention management holds the archived data for a given period of time, and purges the data automatically, or manually, when the data retention policy meets its criteria. The policy-based retention helps organizations comply with the complex regulations governing data retention and minimizes risks of accidental data deletion from the archive.

  • Connectivity with Third Party BI Tools

    The Solix API offers a fully governed permission-based data access to third party BI tools for historical analysis or reporting. This helps organizations to continue to extract value even from archived data seamlessly.

  • Administration & Operations

    Provides comprehensive administrative capabilities including access controls, status monitor, scheduler, data validations, retention policy management, data purge from source, patch synchronizer, full audit trail, and notifications.

Customer & Partner Speak

Database archiving has also helped ATD move toward a lifecycle management approach to data, meaning that the company is able to exercise more control over data's creation, storage, and deletion. "Going through that lifecycle—from production to archiving to elimination—is definitely what we're putting together as a long-term strategy.
