File Analysis Services

(FAS) collects system file information.  This information is used to recommend areas where file system storage can be optimised enabling cost savings and system optimisation

These tools

have been created in-house to quickly analyse your file systems to provide detailed reports on disk usage.  Armed with this information we help you to  maximise your investment, in your storage.  We work alongside your teams to build an informed strategy for your future storage purchases.  This valuable information can also be applied to maximise storage investment decisions through de-duplication and archiving

Major benefits

  • puts you in control
  • improves your backup throughput
  • input into your disaster recovery and business continuity planning
  • the ability to make informed, robust financial decisions

Recent studies

show storage requirements increasing up to a staggering 75% year-on-year.  An informed storage strategy helps maximise your future storage purchases and increase your ROI.  Clients who deploy our services have reclaimed up to 70% of their existing storage by utilising de-duplication and archiving technologies

Key challenges

Reduce costs.  Improve shareholder value.  Manage  (exponential) growth in data.  Accountability.  Protection of key assets

FAS is focused

in particular on the analysis of unstructured data and files which is by far the most prolific and complex to manage and control.  Studies consistently show that as much as 80% of an organisation’s data originates in this form.

Unstructured data consists of basic types including textual objects based on the written language such as letters, proposals, numerical analysis, email and presentations etc., and bitmap or non‐language based objects such as images, videos and audio files

In contrast, structured data – being typically stored in centralised applications such as CRM & ERP and databases ‐ can be managed and controlled much more easily and efficiently


unstructured data has many attributes that can be collected and analysed to provide an accurate and clear picture to support an organisation’s data management decisions both in the short term, and more strategically.
