The amount of data continues to grow exponentially and is predicted to reach 175 Zettabytes by 2025. This is becoming more and more of a challenge for Storage
Admins, including those managing ONTAP File Systems, as the more data there is, the harder it is to manage, analyse and access.

It’s not just the volume of data that is a problem – a large percentage of this data can be classified as ROT – Redundant, Outdated and Trivial data. This data carries a cost – both in terms of infrastructure, power and space. Not to mention the inefficiencies of backing it up or being unable to access critical data when you need to.
And worse, many organisations do not know what data they have – or what it’s made up of.
