Database Archiving is about removing selected data records from transactional and operational databases especially inactive data and storing them in an archive from where the records can be retrieved again, when needed.

With the advent of more advanced technology, organizations that use pre-packaged applications are constantly in need of data privacy protection. There have been giant leaps and great strides taken in the protection of live, sensitive data in application environment. Protection of data in non-production (development & testing) environments is still a critical task which has remained unexplored in several organizations.
Using live production data for testing, development and training increases the risk of data loss. There are several privacy regulations like the HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley which mandate retention of data. Maintenance of data which keeps piling up for years together is essential in the IT governance chain, especially in the non-production environments.
