There are clear legal regulations for the retention of historical business data. Unfortunately, the practical implementation of these requirements is difficult, and many of the recommended solutions – such as the continued operation of legacy systems as virtual instances – are expensive and often do not comply with applicable auditing requirements.
With Outboard DataFridge, we offer you a tool-based method for cost-effective and legally compliant storage of your SAP and non-SAP systems and data – with no need for additional hardware.
A lean solution for decommissioning legacy systems
OutBoard DataFridge supports mass archiving and moves your legacy data to a cost-effective storage solution – providing legal hold, data destruction and flexible access to data.
We recommend using cost-effective cloud-based solutions to store the data. However, DataFridge also supports other on premise and cloud platforms.
Your legacy data is accessible via an SAP user interface, making it easy for users to view their data. This allows you to search, display, export and analyze legacy data conveniently and at any time, for example in the event of a tax audit.
DataFridge™ also allows you to define individual retention rules depending on the document type. This means that data no longer required is automatically deleted from your system when the retention period is reached and your storage costs can be kept within reasonable limits.
