Archiving Information

This refers to information which is not required on a day to day basis, but which needs to be retained for a certain period, and also information which is retained in perpetuity and referred to infrequently but periodically. Such data is often removed from your day-to-day processing, thereby reducing the overhead on storage and processing resources.
