Data Storage & Backup
Data Storage Solutions for Today’s Business
Companies, today, generate more data than ever before and deploying an effective data storage solution has never been more crucial, particularly for small organizations. One of the many benefits, provided by newer technologies, is that companies no longer have to rely, solely, on on-site data storage. Advanced technologies allow them capitalize on the many benefits provided by cloud services, ensuring that their proprietary data is safe and secure, in the cloud. Some companies choose to use both technologies, to provide guarantees that their valuable data is never corrupted or lost.
There are many different storage options, when it comes to backing up your company’s data. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution, so our consultants will work with you, to ensure that we understand your data storage needs and propose the most cost-effective and reliable solution possible. Those may include:
- Online Data Storage
Online data storage utilizes large disk array, limiting access time to the data, but maximizing reliability and security. For many small organizations, online data storage is quickly becoming the the most popular method for storing digital data. Online data storage gives businesses safe and secure access to their proprietary data, anywhere there’s an Internet connection, ensuring the ultimate in mobility and flexibility.
- Data Backup
Data backup is and off-line storage solution, for protecting your data, and is typically less expensive than online data storage. With hard drive space becoming so affordable, there are many on-site data backup options that offer maximum storage capacity, at a very low entry cost. In addition, there are no recurring fees for this data storage solution.
- Data Archiving
Data archiving is similar to data backup, but its purpose is the long-term retention of data, in many instances, to meet required regulatory compliance and provide litigation protection for businesses, in many industries. Data archiving is one of the simplest and most effective ways to manage your data, providing you with the ability to maximize your tier 1 storage, saving money and time. Finally, data archiving gives you the ability to remove old files and duplicate files. De-duplication, across your file servers can often save between 60%-70%, of disk space, for some companies.
- Disaster Recovery Solutions
Disaster recovery solutions are deployed to protect your company’s data from possible natural disasters, and should always be included in a more thorough business continuity plan. Ultimately, a well-thought-out disaster recovery plan can be expected to keep a company going after it experiences an unexpected disruption to services, such as electric power. There are numerous benefits to designing a disaster recovery plan, but the most important factor will be the level of preparedness, for your company, should disaster unexpectedly strike.
