Simply going by definition data archiving is a process of moving essential data that is not in active use in a separate and secured storage device for ling term retention. The archived data you might need for future reference in legal or regulatory compliance matters and can be retrieved as and when required. For locating and retrieving the data, the archives, in different formats, are indexed
Data retrieval is the process of identifying and extracting data from a database, based on a query provided by the user. The retrieved data may be stored in a file, printed, or viewed on the screen. Hence, it is imperative to evolve a system that can facilitate an organized and efficient data archiving & retrieving. We at Fuji Xerox facilitate businesses for data archiving & retrieval of both image and geospatial data.
