DataArchiva is primarily a native data archiving solution for Salesforce. The application helps you archive your historical data and store it in Salesforce’s big data based storage system called ‘Big Objects’. However, DataArchiva offers a connector called ‘DataConnectiva’, using which organizations can store their archived data in any external Cloud or On-premise storage system.DataConnectiva allows you to archive your Salesforce data into external storage platforms such as Heroku, AWS, Azure, Google, etc. with support for a variety of relational databases such as MSSQL, PostgreSQL, Redshift, MySQL & Oracle. How DataArchiva use DataConnectiva?As a structured data archiving solution, DataArchiva periodically archives historical data in your Salesforce Org and use the connector to send it out to any kind of external storage system. Let’s take a use case. If company ‘A’ using a Salesforce system implemented DataArchiva for their data archival requirements, but wish to keep their Salesforce data in AWS system rather than in the Big Objects. We can help them integrate their AWS storage with the Salesforce system. After implementing DataArchiva, the archived data will automatically store in AWS with the help of the connector DataConnectiva. You can also keep your archived data in any On-premise(local) storage system.Difference between DataArchiva and DataConnectivaThough DataConnectiva comes under the DataArchiva suite, it gives an option to store archived data in an external storage system.
