Information Lifecycle Management

Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) is a best practice for managing data throughout its lifecycle. ILM solutions are intended to improve the performance of enterprise applications, reduce infrastructure costs and provide a governance, risk and compliance framework for enterprise data. With ILM organizations are able to optimize their infrastructure with a tiered enterprise data management strategy and establish a control framework for proper data governance and compliance.

Industry analysts point out that up to 80 percent of data is not current, and the value of data declines dramatically over time. ILM classifies data at creation and moves data across infrastructure tiers based on business rules and retention policies. ILM ensures that only current, active data is consuming valuable tier one compute and storage resources, and that all data is governed by compliance policy throughout its lifecycle.

Information Lifecycle Management solutions from Solix
  • Enterprise Archiving: Establish an enterprise scale ILM strategy by archiving and retiring structured and/or unstructured data into Apache Hadoop based on retention policies. Access archived data via structured query or text search.
  • Enterprise Data Lake: Solix Enterprise Data Lake reduces the complexity and processing burden to stage EDW and analytics applications, and provides highly efficient, bulk storage of enterprise data for later use when it is needed. Solix Data Lake provides a copy of production data and stores it “as is” in bulk for later use.
  • Database Archiving: Classify, manage and migrate your application data for improved application performance. Maintain native access to data at all times.
  • Application Retirement: Simplify your application infrastructure by decommissioning legacy applications and data that are no longer active. Reduce infrastructure costs by retiring data to low cost infrastructure with full or even enhanced access.
