The Data Headache
Data Management – storage, archival and retrieval - is a major IT headache for organisations. Over the next decade, the world’s digital data is set to expand by 44 times and as this data grows so does the requirement to store it. Excessive data storage places a huge strain on IT systems by needlessly using up server resources.
We offer businesses a high performance, highly available, totally secure, resilient and scalable solution for their data storage needs.
For any organisation operating in today's world, information is as valuable as any currency.
But it can be easily lost or destroyed. Equipment failures and natural disasters can wipe out facilities and hence data. If an organisation loses valuable information, daily business operations will be interrupted, reputation can be lost, and there is a very real risk that an organisation may fall foul of regulation and compliance, translating into costly legal fees and fines.
It is therefore essential that organisations backup their systems and archiving their data carefully. Thought has to be given to how accessible data is in order to select the appropriate backup-hardware solution. Some data may need to be accessible at all times, whilst other information can be stored and retrieved as necessary.
Geography has an important part to play. If a natural disaster destroys corporate facilities, an organisation will have hoped that its data is stored at another location and that it has a strategy for recovering and restoring it in a reasonable amount of time.
