Backup vs. Archiving Needs for Search
It’s a long-standing misconception that the backup and archiving are interchangeable terms. However, there are distinct differences between them - one is built for quick and easy data access while the other is slower to retrieve. As such, many organizations require separate backup and archiving tools. As noted above, many backup tools offer some discovery search functionality. Many archiving tools do as well. For example, G Suite and Office 365 both offer native discovery search. Your organization’s specific search needs will dictate the necessary approach and tools.
