Inactive data is eating away at the available storage of MSI's highest performing, and most expensive, storage platform. MSI’s Advanced Systems Operations group has developed metrics, policy, and a workflow to identify and move this data to less expensive archival storage. This archival storage may - in the longer term - have extensions to then automatically move this archived data to even less expensive cold storage.
The new policy for “abandoned” data has been posted to the MSI website: Data Lifecycle After a PI Leaves MSI.
Questions about the policy should be sent to the MSI Helpdesk at email@example.com.
