You can use Pentaho Data Storage Optimizer to inventory stored data, identify content, usage, and tier files into long term or archival storage. You can take rule-driven actions about data lifecycles to account for compliance, cost, and mitigate risks, using a set of convenient tools and self-service processes for sustainable improvements in data management. This applies regardless of the vendor and across local, cloud, and core environments. If needed, you can restore tiered files at any time.

Data Storage Optimizer provides you with the following key capabilities:

  • File identification and classification.
  • Rule-based governance of data storage location, life cycle, retention, and access.
  • Rules-driven tiering or purging.
