Data classification supports all measures to be able to use stored information optimally.
Whether in content management, document management, hierarchical storage management( HSM), information lifecycle management( ILM) or archiving, the information stored in storagearea networks( SAN) must be available as quickly as possible for information management or everyday business processes, classified according to certain priorities and attributes.
Data classification involves organizing data into groups according to specific categories or attributes. Each group of data has equal attributes that are categorized by metadata. Classification ensures that data is maintained and used efficiently according to the priority set by the user under a suitable storage infrastructure. A well- structured data classification makes it easier to find the data.
