Benefits Of Archiving Salesforce Data Using AWS Cloud | DataArchiva

Welcome to the second part of our ‘Archive with your AWS’ blog series. Here, we will be strictly focusing on Salesforce data archiving using AWS cloud and no others. To understand the following context better, we would recommend you go back to our 1st blog of the series before you start with the next. 

Today’s hunch is to dive deeper into – Why Salesforce-AWS integration is ideal for addressing a myriad of challenges in Salesforce data archiving.

1) Get a Sheer Pricing Advantage

It’s time to call cost-offs from inevitable cost-ons. Salesforce-AWS integration can automatically bring down your Salesforce data storage costs, as you are not using any. The entire data archiving process is directed to your database systems via AWS, which are already in use.

Moreover, setting up your AWS cloud with a remote database requires no extensive permissions or billing access and comfortably works for all major databases like  MS SQL, MySQL, ‌Redshift, or Postgres. AWS provides you with connectivity options to assign the destination of your Salesforce data archives. An ideal solution for long-term data retention needs, compared to storing business-critical data within the Salesforce primary storage space. 

This is to note: If you are using DataArchiva you don’t need any external tool to connect your Salesforce with AWS for archiving. This helps you to get rid of the additional cost of buying separate connectors. Plus, DataArchiva doesn’t need any additional cost for maintenance, reducing the cost of Salesforce data archiving while maximizing ROI.

2) Stay Effortlessly Compliant

Salesforce-run businesses face storage limitations because they need to retain data for a longer period. According to compliance retention goals or ‌ industry best practices, the data retention period can be 1 year, 5 years, or more. Slow org performance and tardy reporting are only two of the serial consequences the system suffers, every time it reaches the data storage limit. For them, archiving data outside Salesforce can be the right choice to stay compliant without upgrading storage. 

Via AWS cloud one can seamlessly move the old Salesforce records to a safe archive destination. It’s most unlikely for a big business to not have a subscription to the AWS cloud. Making it a popular cloud to leverage while archiving data from Salesforce.

3) Bid Adieu To Salesforce Governance Limits

In a multi tenant CRM system, co-processing can lead to computing challenges. Imposing governance limits could put this to check. Restricting the number of records you retrieve or process as a Salesforce user, ensures improved performance for its cloud apps. Thereby, it cuts down on substantial processing delays by improving experiences for all. 

Salesforce-AWS Integration bails its users from hitting the Salesforce governance limits. When you use AWS as an external archiving engine, it’s no longer a burden on your current Salesforce org. As long as your Salesforce is connected to your AWS cloud, archiving, Salesforce records are off-limits and are no longer counted in numbers.

4) Experience Faster Data Processing Speed

Integrating Salesforce with your AWS cloud is like having two heads to get your job done. As one helps to gather your needed customer info, while the other helps to store it as data in your database. In a way, the AWS cloud fuels your Salesforce system with the needed speed to store the data as fast as it generates. 

If the initial setup is done right, via AWS can be your fastest way to ensure safe archival of your Salesforce data. And the archives can be in any database of your choice. Be it ‌ MS SQL, MySQL, ‌Redshift, or Postgres, the AWS cloud can be a perfect host for archiving Salesforce data to your selected database. 

5)  Acknowledge Better BI for Analytics 

Business Intelligence or BI per se, refers to the procedure or the infra where you feed your data to derive insights. As core competencies, BI tools specialize in creating visual stories for their customers. If you envisage revamping your business strategies in a data-driven way, Salesforce can be a good source to derive information that can be processed in a BI.

Moreover, BI tools are fed by data and powered by databases. When you are keeping your Salesforce data within the AWS cloud at any database, you can integrate any BI tools and run a comparative analysis on your unused data. Whether it’s Tableau or PowerBI, you can derive insightful business details & generate reports from your Salesforce data in no time.

6) Maximizing Your Salesforce ROI

Archiving with AWS brings down all your data storage barriers. Your AWS-integrated Salesforce system has no storage limits. If you periodically set up your archiving processes, you can automatically store your Salesforce data within your preferred databases. This allows you to use your Salesforce app to its full potential and helps you to achieve better results. 

You can also seamlessly use any 3rd-party AppExchange app to achieve Salesforce goals without worrying about data growth. Furthermore, you can integrate other external systems with your Salesforce app to have a single business view, as storage limitations are no longer a concern. 

Hence, your Salesforce-AWS integrations plan tops your profitability estimates, maximizing your ROI from Salesforce. 

7) Better Data Protection

Archiving Salesforce data from the primary data storage space is a good option to ensure that your legacy data is safe and is not taking up expensive resources. With AWS cloud connectivity, you can seamlessly move your business data to an external database and assure that all your data is not lying in one place.

Archiving to an external database creates a safe orb to hold your business-critical data. Therefore, when you are retaining data for a longer time, there are lesser chances of losing the data at any force-majeure cause. Hence, provides better data protection and the confidence to run your business in Salesforce.

8) Leverage the AWS Cloud for Salesforce File Management 

You can leverage Salesforce-AWS integration to optimize your file storage as well. With S3, customers can easily move their files & attachments from Salesforce to their external S3 storage. XfilesPro is one of the most popular applications which can help you to achieve this.
