  • The leading educational institute was using Salesforce extensively and was dealing with a huge volume of data (nearly 600GB). The volume of the historical data was huge that basically included old Cases & Emails.
  • Apart from this, they also had a big chunk of Field History Data that they wanted to archive. 
  • As the data they were dealing with were highly sensitive in nature, they were looking for an archiving solution that can take care of the security aspects. 
  • They already had an infrastructure set with AWS Postgres to keep the archived data of their Salesforce system. So, they were looking for a solution that supports AWS. 
  • They were also looking for a solution that can help them view the archived records using the console app.
