Salesforce storage is expensive

With users across the business adding records to Salesforce, it’s easy to hit storage limits.  This restricts your use of Salesforce and leads to declining org performance — forcing you to delete data or pay for additional storage.

Data archiving removes obsolete data from your Salesforce orgs, reducing your storage costs and preventing performance degradation. You still have complete control: restore data at any time, retain records for compliance regulations, and keep your data stored safely off-platform.

Archiving FAQs

Gearset’s backup solution is there to protect you in the event of data or metadata loss. Our Salesforce data archiving solution is about removing data from production to free up storage space and avoid performance degradation. This means archiving is used for smaller sub-sections of data. Like backup data, you can always restore archived data to production.

Gearset’s Salesforce experts will be happy to help you navigate managing the data lifecycle, please get in touch to arrange!

There are two key types of data you’ll want to archive: legacy data and data for compliance. Legacy data is infrequently used by your end users and takes up valuable space in your org storage — you can identify this by monitoring data usage.

Data for compliance is whatever you need to keep to meet regulatory requirements, but don’t need to need to access in your orgs. For example, the Companies Act requires you to retain financial data for up to 7 years. Gearset will support you in creating and executing your data archiving strategy.

Data lifecycle management controls the flow and governance of data from cradle to grave. Data archiving is a critical step towards the end of the lifecycle that allows you to safely remove data from live environments and set a data retention period before permanent deletion. Alongside archiving, Gearset’s backup and sandbox seeding solutions allow you to protect and migrate Salesforce data.
