The importance of data storage cannot be overestimated
Virtually everywhere on the planet, data is growing exponentially and it's not about to slow down anytime soon!
Everyone is generating data at a rate never seen before AND, it’s only going to increase!
That’s why businesses, governments, organization and institutions are looking for betters ways to handle and manage the mountains of information they have.
Cloud storage services definitely help as they enables you to pay only for what you need and you can easily add resources when needed. In other words, pay as you go.
Is local storage in danger of disappearing?
Far from it! As a matter of fact, local data storage complements cloud storage services.
Bottom line, no matter what the cost is, you can not skimp on your storage just to save a few dollars. Just ask yourself, how much is my business worth and, decide from there.
With that in mind, Data Telcom makes it a point to offer best of breed storage systems from the captains of the industry.
At the risk of repeating ourselves, whereas servers are at the heart of your network and perform all the data processing, STORAGE is even more critical to a business’ survival!
Loss of storage = Loss of data!
Depending on the circumstances at hand and the area of your network where the storage failed, it may not be that bad. HOWEVER, in certain instances, if you haven’t done a threat and risk assessment (TRA) and put policies and procedures in place, starting with having a good backup solution and the means to quickly replace the defective storage, loss of data can result in:
Loss of PRODUCTIVITY due to COUNTLESS hours of manpower spent inputting everything back onto the new system!
Loss of productivity = Lost REVENUES!
Again depending on the circumstances at hand,
Loss of data = Losing your reputation in the marketplace and with your customer!
Loss of reputation = Lost REVENUES (again)!
In the absolute worst of cases:
Loss of data = Having to CLOSE your doors PERMANENTLY!
With Internet of Things (IoT) devices continually generating vasts amounts of data along with new software, databases, data analytic tools and applications coming to market daily, the need for local storage is more important than ever. Why?
Cloud storage services are great but, you have to contend with the fact that you’re introducing latency in your company’s operations as well as other risks!
Is this latency acceptable to you or not? If not, you definitely need local storage because it gives you:
Cloud storage services are here to stay and they definitely offer some undeniable advantages and yes, they can most definitely help reduce capital expenditure costs and enable you to safely store your data off-site.
BUT, they are not, nor will they be, able to completely replace the need and necessity for local storage systems. Not in the foreseeable future anyway.
