Demystifying Your Dark Data

A considerable part of enterprise data, up to 80%, is Dark Data – data that your organization has forgotten or may not even realize it possesses.  Unlike physical assets, data isn't visible, which complicates the process of identifying and disposing of superfluous Dark Data.  This kind of data, generated by humans, machines, and processes, is stored but rarely used, leading to needless recurring storage costs and cluttering outdated legacy data repositories, thereby hindering access to valuable data.  Furthermore, the environmental impact of storing redundant data is significant, demanding excessive energy, cooling, and data center space.

It Just Keeps On Growing …

Interestingly, about 30% of an organization's Big Data is redundant, obsolete, or trivial [ROT], lacking any substantial business or legal value.  However, your organization continues to store such unnecessary data.  The challenge is compounded as the volume of Big Data grows rapidly, constituting 80% to 90% of all new enterprise data and proliferating at triple the rate of structured data.  A significant portion of this data exists outside traditional data centers, accumulating swiftly and invisibly.  In an era where IT departments are tasked with reducing escalating expenditures both on-premises and in the cloud, it is essential to eliminate or at least minimize debilitating ROT.

 

Significant Cost Reduction

ZNZ Data Processing enables you to achieve substantial cost savings by identifying and disposing of ROT.  By purging redundant and obsolete data, you can optimize storage resources and reduce expenses associated with managing extraneous data.

Identify, Classify, and Profile

Lack of visibility into Dark Data makes it challenging to identify ROT, let alone manage it efficiently.  This is where ZNZ Data Processing becomes an invaluable next-generation archiving tool.  It enables you to cut through the clutter of your legacy data repositories swiftly and unearth Dark Data.  By deploying advanced AI-enhanced algorithms, ZNZ Data Processing can identify, classify, and profile your data, distinguishing between valuable data and ROT.  Such clarity allows for streamlined and cost-effective data management.  Additionally, understanding your data can also facilitate more effective cloud migration strategies.

 

ROT Scoring and Analysis

ZNZ Data Processing delivers accurate ROT scoring and analysis, categorizing data based on redundancy, obsolescence, and triviality.  With this data categorization, your organization can efficiently prioritize cleanup, migration, or archival activities, targeting its resources toward the most impactful areas, resulting in considerable time and resource savings.

ZNZ Data Processing facilitates fast, petabyte-scale metadata AI-augmented analysis to determine critical criteria such as data ownership, utilization, redundancy, and age.  And through AI-augmented analysis and defensible deletion, you can remove unnecessary data that exceeds defined retention schedules, achieving immediate cost savings and a more streamlined data environment.

Data Remediation
ZNZ Data Processing facilitates fast, petabyte-scale metadata AI-augmented analysis to determine critical criteria such as data ownership, utilization, redundancy, and age.  By eliminating old, redundant, and irrelevant data, especially Dark Data, your organization can improve data quality, dramatically reduce storage costs, and enhance its overall security and compliance posture.
 

Data Storage Optimization and Cost Savings
ZNZ Data Processing empowers your organization to assess its escalating data estate costs and take actionable insights to reduce legacy storage expenses dramatically.  Through AI-augmented analysis and defensible deletion, you can remove unnecessary data that exceeds defined retention schedules, achieving immediate cost savings and a more streamlined data environment.

Since ZNZ Data Processing can help reduce storage infrastructure, support, and power by up to 70%, the savings in annual data storage costs can be significant.  For example, if an enterprise is currently spending $50,000 per terabyte of data per year, reducing its storage needs by 70% would result in savings of $35,000 per terabyte of data annually.  For a regional enterprise with 10 terabytes of data, this could result in savings of $350,000 per year, and for a large international enterprise with 1,000 terabytes of data, the savings could be as much as $35 million per year.
 

Reducing Electricity Consumption
Utilizing ZNZ Data Processing to reduce data storage can result in significant cost savings, as well as a reduction in electricity consumption and carbon footprint.  By reducing the amount of data stored, your organization can mitigate the environmental impact of its data storage practices.

In terms of electricity consumption, the average electricity consumption for the storage of one terabyte of data in a disk array is approximately 120 kWh per year.  Therefore, if an enterprise is able to reduce its data storage by 70%, it could potentially reduce its electricity consumption by up to 84 kWh per terabyte of data annually.
 

Cost Savings From Carbon Credits
Reducing electricity consumption can have a significant impact on an enterprise’s carbon footprint, as the generation of electricity is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions.  The reduction of 84 kWh per terabyte of data annually could result in a reduction of approximately 60 kg of CO2 emissions per year, assuming an average carbon intensity of 0.71 kg CO2 per kWh.  For an enterprise with 100 terabytes of data, this could result in a reduction of approximately 6,000 kg of CO2 emissions per year.

As of March 2023, the average price of carbon credits in the European Union Emissions Trading System [EU ETS] was approximately €60 per tonne of CO2 emissions.  Using this price as a reference, the reduction of 6,000 kg of CO2 emissions per year would represent a cost savings of approximately €360 per year.  Reducing electricity consumption through the use of more efficient data storage solutions can have significant environmental benefits while reducing costs for enterprises over the long term.
