Why You Need Data Archives

Government regulations, corporate policies, and other mandates require businesses to keep data they’re not using so they can retrieve it in the future. However, when a business allows that legacy data (such as sales and accounting information for inactive users) to linger in its production systems, it can significantly slow down performance. Data archiving extracts this unused information and stores it in an external solution so it won't get in your way or inhibit the performance of your production systems.

Data Archiving Benefits

Reduces Costs

Archived data doesn’t need fancy storage, so it’s often stored on low performance high capacity media, which reduces maintenance and operating costs.

Increases Capacity

When assessing data backups, you may find that certain information is no longer crucial. Archiving that data reduces the size of your backup and makes room for new data storage.

Regulatory Compliance

Perhaps the most compelling benefit to archived data is indexed records that meet regulatory compliance timelines and policies.

Simplifies Data Discovery

Archiving makes it easier for your end users to find the data they need without having to wade through outdated or unnecessary data sets.

Increases Speed of Production System

Without unnecessary data bogging things down, your production system can function as it was meant to. That means quicker inquiries, more accurate analytics, and less time spent filtering through irrelevant data.

It's cost-effective and flexible. It runs on prem, in cloud, or virtual private cloud, and works w/ on prem and cloud data sources. And they are super responsive.
Brad D.
The number of connectors were off the charts. Building the maps between the two different databases (one being a Client Server app, and the other being 'in the cloud' was easier than i thought it would be. Very powerful code based options.
Joe I., NEC Display Solutions
The customer support that we received from the Starfish support team was phenomenal. They are dedicated and do everything they can to make sure your migration is successful. Our migration to Salesforce involved moving over 3 million records - and the Starfish team was there whenever we needed them.
Mohit M., Dinan & Co, LLC
We have an extremely customized database that works great for our business but maintaining the data has been challenging. Starfish has significantly improved our staff's productivity by allowing us to import several layers of records that are extremely time consuming to create manually.

Our consultant, Opfocus found Starfish ETL for us and we wish we found them 4 weeks earlier. They handled out GM migration to SFDC within 3 days and without any problems.

I used StarfishETL for converting from a on-premises CRM to a cloud based CRM. This tool is powerful and fast. I cannot image ever using any other tool for migrating or integrating data.
