At MPIE we recently provided input to a whitepaper from
NetApp - a leading unified storage solutions supplier - on compliance trends and how to reduce the risk and costs of their impact. I will leave you to judge the specific merits of the
NetApp solution, but the general principles are clear. By understanding and designing for the wider compliance trends (not just the requirements of each individual regulation), storing data once in a unified architecture and by choosing the correct level
of this architecture at which to implement specific functionality you not only reduce complexity (almost always a good thing in my view), but also improve the flexibility to react to the ever increasing demands of regulation.
