Information Lifecycle Management
The Information Lifecycle
All information, or data, in a storage network has a specific lifecycle, from the
time the information enters an organization’s system to the time it is archived
or removed from the system. There are three stages in the information
Creation and/or acquisition of the data.
Publication and use of the data.
Retention or removal of the data.
Some information must be archived for later use, and some
information has a finite purpose and can be discarded when it is no
longer valuable to the organization.
