in our Org, we exceed the limit of data storage regularly, we already bought expensive additional storage volume. I am wondering, if there are any alternative to archive or store external with access from salesforce for following objects: -campaign -campaign members -Email Messages -Tasks -Individual email results

Thanks a lot for your opinions...

One of the options I can imagine would be to create some remote service that could fetch the data via Salesforce APIs and store it locally on some server. Then, when needed, the stored data could be send back to Salesforce on demand. I would also include some mechanism in Apex for searching and querying the remote storage. There would have to be some search functionality by the remote service side - I would use C# linq, or store the objects in some noSQL database and query it with it's API.

Although there might be some Out of the box solutions I don't know about, this approach seems pretty flexible for me.

    There's an expensive new feature that allows you to connect to remote objects and use them as if they were native objects, Lightning Connect. But that is only worth it if it saves you storage costs more than it costs. – sfdcfox Jun 19 '15 at 3:43

2019 Update:

Salesforce has introduced Big Objects few releases back which provides cheap storage for archived records in SF. It gives consitent performance whether you have 1 million records, 100 million, or even 1 billion.

If there are any alternative to archive or store external with access from salesforce for following objects: -campaign -campaign members -Email Messages -Tasks -Individual email results ? Yes you have to create custom Big Objects, copy data from Salesforce Sobject and store in Big Objects and delete the existing records. I cant give you exact number but big object storage was 1/4th cost of Data-Storage.
