Power: Managing data at scale

Archiving Large Data Volumes on Salesforce requires a powerful and optimized approach. 

A high-performance solution effectively addresses compliance requirements and handles the accumulated backlog of data. Breaking down massive data volumes into manageable chunks ensures quick and accurate archiving, without compromising system performance or risking data loss. 

Odaseva delivers on these capabilities, empowering enterprises to efficiently handle their archiving needs, regardless of data volume.

Control: Balancing user experience and data removal

Maintaining a seamless user experience while efficiently removing data is a crucial aspect of successful data archiving. Comprehensive control over the archiving process ensures critical data remains accessible to users, while meeting compliance requirements and optimizing system performance. 

That’s why Odaseva offers the Odaseva Archive Viewer, which enables organizations to preserve data relationships, recreate the look and feel of their Org, and empower users to easily search for data within Salesforce. 

Governance: Planning for future growth

Robust governance practices are vital for safeguarding against data failures, and planning for future growth. By understanding usage patterns and optimizing operations, organizations can balance steady-state strategies, address backlogs efficiently, and maintain complete visibility and control over their data. 

Odaseva’s governance capabilities empower organizations to make informed decisions, ensuring data integrity, compliance, and scalability. The Odaseva Enterprise Data Protection Platform equips Salesforce teams with Advanced Analytics tools that monitor and predict data growth, enabling proactive planning and effective data strategy execution. 

Security: Protecting archived data

In today’s data landscape, securing archived data is of paramount importance. This includes safeguarding data in Salesforce, during transit, processing, and while at rest in a stored archive. 

Data security is baked into the Odaseva Enterprise Data Protection Platform, implementing continuous encryption measures throughout the entire data lifecycle. With zero-trust storage, multiple layers of encryption, and a “no-view provider” approach, Odaseva ensures unparalleled data security. Organizations can confidently protect their data and maintain control over their sensitive information with at-rest column/file/field encryption and have the ability to bring their own key.
