Genius Cloud storage team can help to analyse your entire storage estate – identifying every device and detailing how it’s used, what it stores and which software applications interact with it. Then we can assess how best to adapt your existing storage systems in order to meet new data storage demands. Our initial, detailed audits are often enough to free-up existing storage capacity… by uncovering duplicate data sets or even data that is still being stored beyond legally defined periods.
