Overgrown databases are reducing the efficiency and performance of ERP, CRM and custom applications that collect information from various sources and turn it into data that helps users run their businesses. Vast amounts of data increase risk and storage and management costs and add complexity.

How does this data grow so quickly? Much of the data growth that threatens mission-critical enterprise applications is organic. As part of doing business, you collect more data from your customers and suppliers and it begins to add up. Mergers and acquisitions are also responsible for data growth because data is acquired along with organizations and applications. The "data multiplier effect" that occurs when data is duplicated for backups, business continuity, and disaster recovery creates even more data. Industry and government regulatory and compliance rules result in the storage of more data.

The value of much of this data decreases over time. That's where the IBM Optim Data Growth Solution can help. The solution archives historical transaction records, segregating it from current data and storing it securely and cost-effectively.


The IBM Optim Database Archiving platform provides the following capabilities to accelerate the deployment and management of your data.

Compliance Archiving
With IBM Optim Database Archiving enterprises have the flexibility to archive data while keeping it in its original database format, or archiving to an open XML format, or both in combination.

Performance Archiving
IBM Optim Database Archiving software for performance archiving is intended for environments where application transparency and Reporting are critical to providing high levels of archiving access. Application transparency leverages the native application for accessing archived data – the same application screens and reports are used to query and view archive data. Reporting provides the ability to create a single report and to query data from both the production database and the archive.

Application Retirement

IBM Optim Database Archiving software empowers application portfolio management by automating the process of retirement of obsolete applications while archiving vital data, thereby allowing companies to reassign expensive IT staff and shut down or recycle servers and storage systems while guaranteeing integrity of all data archived.

Subsetting and Data Security
Subsetting and Data Security IBM Optim Database Archiving software streamlines environments by automating the creation of smaller, relationally intact, policy-based subset databases. With smaller clone environments you reduce the overall storage footprint, improve cloning times, secure data and accelerate test and development cycles. In addition, IBM Optim Database Archiving provides masking and security techniques that obscure sensitive data within the database. Through masking, when test or development subsets are created, sensitive data is maintained only in the production database.

What can IBM Optim do for you?

  • Archiving optimizes storage to improve application performance by as much as 50% or more, helping IT to meet SLAs while decreasing total cost:
    • It trims production databases by offloading inactive datasets that are no longer in daily use.
    • It removes inactive data from production and all copies to reduce disk and tape requirements.
    • It creates a tiered data architecture based on business rules, providing a baseline for tiering data protection and disaster recovery/business continuity.
  • By reducing the size of production databases significantly it:
    • Makes tiered storage a reality.
    • Improves business agility.
    • Decreases the risk from change management including installation of new software versions and migration to new hardware.
    • Reduces the resources required for application maintenance.
    • Decreases times for backups and for DR, should that become necessary.
  • The flexible architecture and robust feature set eases implementation:
    • Multiple options allow companies to deploy the right method for each application.
    • It provides a single tool for managing standard and custom archiving across multiple applications, reducing maintenance and overhead costs.
    • It leverages existing investments in database technology and archiving platforms.
  • Its metadata-based approach separates business logic from technical implementation:
    • As technologies change, retaining ILM policies at the metadata level eases underlying infrastructure transitions.
    • It leverages metadata for multiple projects beyond archiving, secure cloning, subsetting, data masking and application retirement.
  • It cuts the cost of storage by decreasing the amount of data on expensive Tier 1 disks significantly.
  • It meets compliance requirements by preserving data in a read-only format while supporting data visualization through standard reporting tools.
  • It mitigates risk by reducing the amount of data exposed to potential problems.
  • It improves business continuity by cutting the active data that requires backup and potential restoration by as much as 80%, decreasing backup windows significantly
