The implementation of an Enterprise Data Management system requires an understanding of the corporate dataset.
Moonwalk™ provides a file system analysis tool that operates as a special policy. Once configured, the Moonwalk™ policy gathers all relevant information for the data profile provided. Initial execution provides a detailed view of the corporate dataset.
This report highlights key areas where Moonwalk™ can deliver the most value by:
- Migrating old files
- Migrating lesser-used files
- Migrating very large files
- The Removal or Quarantine of unwanted files
- Restructuring directories based on Data Management policies
This information is used to create the first Moonwalk™ policies. Executed in Simulation-mode, the results of the Moonwalk™ policies are fully displayed before being deployed into production, removing the risks of guesswork.
Policies can be fine-tuned until they yield the desired outcome.
Over time, reporting policies and the Moonwalk Simulator provide a mechanism for storage optimization and continual data management improvement.
