Open Storage Solutions® Inc Helps Manage Mass Data Fragmentation with Cohesity

Secondary storage refers to backups, archives, test-dev systems, file shares, public cloud, private cloud as well as other seldom used or forgotten subsystems. Secondary data is estimated to grow in companies by anywhere from 25% to over 100% this year.  Mass data fragmentation is the scourge of secondary storage services. It refers to data strewn across those multiple active siloes and in the forgotten semi-decommissioned resources. Managing that secondary, dormant, but essential data can present significant challenges, and if not managed effectively, can result in competitive difficulty, user experience struggle, compliance penalties, and perhaps legal challenges.
