Executive Summary

Time and again, ESG research finds that data growth is cited as a top IT storage challenge. IT organizations large and small are being inundated with data that needs to be stored, managed, and retained (for a period of time that is usually classified as "Indefinitely") all while remaining accessible 24x7. With disk drive density growing and prices falling (on a pure dollar per megabyte basis), organizations rarely delete data. It has become less expensive to store all data forever than it is to find and delete the data that is "Safe" to get rid of - in other words, data that would not need to be retained for referral, business, or legal reasons.
