STarchive reduces storage space costs by reducing the volume of information that needs to be saved with on-premise systems. STarchive also achieves extraordinary saving compared to alternative on-premise solutions as it does not require the installation, set up, maintenance or upgrade of hardware or software. Instead, your information is saved in cost-effective cloud storage facilities that will give you immediate additional storage space when you need it.
