Problem

Problem

BCG’s marketing organization is responsible for all digital content promoting its brand and utilizes Egnyte to store and share these assets across the organization. The usage of video by the marketing organization continued to expand and with it came an explosion of storage needs. Egnyte’s SaaS subscription model, like many file-sharing cloud offerings, provides a storage limit for the base subscription and when that is reached additional storage must be procured. For BCG, this cost became an ever-growing part of their budget, but replacing Egnyte would not be easy because users like its’ file sharing features.

Solution

Solution

BCG chose Support Partners’ AIR Archive to provide them insight into their Egnyte storage usage and to reduce the storage demands of the platform effectively. AIR Archive’s data discovery tools, coupled with its’ dashboard, identified the shares consuming the most significant amount of storage. Support Partners’ expertise helped BCG prioritize the media movement from Egnyte into Microsoft’s Azure platform. AIR Archive automated the file movement while retaining linkage to the moved media within Egnyte. Further, AIR Archive managed indexing of the media files with Microsoft AI services to derive additional understanding, such as identifying persons, places, and things within the media. Egnyte users had a limited impact since they could still search and retrieve media directly from within Egnyte. However, they had the added capability of browsing the contents of the media using the new AI tagging information. This enabled faster discovery time for media meeting their specific search criteria.

By moving media from Egnyte to Microsoft’s Azure Blob storage, BCG saved 40% off their media storage costs and fell within their Egnyte storage limit. Egnyte administrators gained valuable insight into their file-sharing usage through the Support Partners’ AIR Archive discovery tools and managed services to manage their Egnyte consumption better moving forward. Egnyte end users could use the tool they like while reducing media discovery time from AI-infused insights.
