Salesforce, as a popular CRM platform, has revamped the manner in which companies manage their sales department and keep track of its productivity. Employees across all enterprise departments actively use Salesforce to monitor their data as it helps them manage interactions with their ongoing customers and follow-up with the potential customers. But the main concern of Salesforce admins and managers is where should those documents be stored? A storage optimization strategy is extremely important else the data storage costs can quickly pile up.
There is a great way to combat the storage issues without overloading the internal storage systems of Salesforce. An external storage system, also referred to as auxiliary storage and secondary storage system, can be deployed to ease some of the difficulties. All the addressable data, records, files, and other material can be easily stored outside of Salesforce’s main storage. This kind of external storage enables users to store relevant data separately from Salesforce’s native storage at a relatively lower cost.
But most enterprises hesitate to export sensitive business data outside their secure Salesforce ecosystem. Even then, integrating an external storage system can reform your Salesforce Org immensely. There are several means of external storage available, but cloud storage format has bypassed most of them in terms of usability and longevity. Choosing the correct type of storage that suits your needs and then deploying it for your Org requires thorough planning. We have put together a simple list of things that you should keep in mind while making this decision:
After you have made a choice for your enterprise, it is best if you use this external storage to archive the old legacy Salesforce data. DataArchiva, a data archiving tool easily available on the Salesforce AppExchange, can help you in this respect. DataArchiva is an EXTERNAL data archiving solution that lets Salesforce customers archive their historical data such as old emails, contacts, cases, leads, and much more automatically and then store it in their preferred external storage system without losing out on the data integrity. You can easily view your archived data stored externally in the Salesforce internal system itself, perform custom search operations on the archived data, and set up policies and permissions for viewing the data, which grants additional security and data integrity.
