SharePoint Online Archiving

Low cost ‘overspill’ SharePoint storage in Microsoft Azure.

Seamlessly add to your SharePoint Online storage using Microsoft Azure – and save up to 90% on your Microsoft storage bill.

Shrink your SharePoint storage costs

Discover how much you can save

Is a combination of retention policies and sheer data volume rapidly eating up your default SharePoint Online quota?

You can purchase additional storage from Microsoft for $0.20 gigabyte/month, but for a LOT less, you can extend your available storage with low cost BLOB storage on Microsoft Azure.

Depending on your data volume, redundancy requirements and the type of Azure tiered storage you need, our SharePoint storage pricing is between half and one tenth of the cost of SharePoint Online storage costs.

For example, a comparative quotation to store 500TB was going to cost £410,000 p.a. from Microsoft.

It was less than £63,000 to store in our Azure archive.

SharePoint Online Archiving

No lock-in

A true cloud model, our Azure SharePoint archive does not lock your data in either technically or contractually. Pay only for what you use.

Data Governance

Apply retention policies, put items on litigation hold, get WORM compliance and prevent data loss.

Re-purpose existing file servers as cloud storage gateways.

Creates copies, adds storage tiers and migrates data based on policies you define without adding new hardware or disrupting users/apps.

Data aware storage

Once stored in the cloud, you can visualise and query what data you have, so that you can make better decisions on what to keep. Build policies, audit activity and perform discovery as and when you need to.
