Storage area network (SAN) management: Compliance assessment

Streamlining data storage management through retention policies can ease the burden of regulation compliance and data management.

What elements of storage compliance can VARs address by hardware or software for an SMB?
Resellers can add significant value by following these steps:

  1. Help customers identify the applicable regulations for their industry.
  2. Create a retention policy for each data type, taking business requirements and the regulations into account. These data types may include financial records, HR documents, executive communications and more.
  3. Determine which data types exist in each application in the customer's application portfolio.
  4. Finally, hardware and software solutions can be deployed to support the classification, relocation and storage or destruction as required.
