Intelligent Microsoft 365 Archiving

Combat rising cloud storage costs and information overload

Reduce storage costs and improve data quality and information management in Microsoft 365


Intelligent Microsoft 365 Archiving

Combat rising cloud storage costs and information overload

The cloud is the defacto place to work. Collaboration, file and document storage, and even records management have shifted to Microsoft 365.

The problem? All your videos, images, and other large files (and their versions!) can easily over-run your SharePoint and content storage allowance. Microsoft has started charging for storage overages, so now is the time to get your files in check to avoid an unexpected bill. Plus, all that content makes it harder for users to find what they need.

Intelligent archiving can move data to lower cost cloud storage, improve data quality, and ensure compliance.

The Benefits of Microsoft 365 Archiving

Save on Microsoft 365 storage costs

Reduce cloud storage overages by removing large media files or stale content from your Microsoft 365 sites and content stores.

Manage information lifecycle

Create storage tiers to move content based on time or metadata-based triggers to keep active workspaces clean and uncluttered.

Support records management

Create term stores, apply classification, and implement file plans. Store and archive content in encrypted, compliant, and exportable formats.


Automate content retention in Microsoft 365

Apply lifecycle management policies to Microsoft 365 content. Use business rules and filters to move content to lower cost storage, remove and delete content, or retain immutable, read-only copies.

Archive content to save on your next monthly bill, or enable defensible disposition. Maintain comprehensive audit trails of content that has been archived, declared a record, moved, or deleted.


Swift, simple and on-demand restore

Restore archived content any time you want, back to Microsoft 365 SharePoint Online, Groups, and OneDrive for Business with metadata, workflows, and permissions intact.

Easily browse for content to restore based on its original Microsoft 365 location, or using advanced search and filter conditions.
