Data Storage Infrastructure
Owing to exponential data growth, data storage requirements are increasing across all enterprise sizes, and this trend appears to be continuing.
The lifeblood of most businesses is information in the form of e-mails, documents, presentations, databases, graphics, audio files, and spreadsheets, as well as various programmes. All this data take a lot of disc space.
Regardless of the data type, your critical concern should be how your data is stored. Asiaepros offers secure storage solutions, whether on-prem or in the cloud. We can help you determine the best data storage solution based on your specific retrieval needs – whether you’re dealing with day-to-day data or legal storage requirements.
What are the storage types?
Cloud-based storage - The cost of accommodating hard drives or updating existing servers is eliminated with cloud storage. Storing information on the cloud means that any environmental degradation will not impact your data, and you will still be linked to your data regardless of location or circumstance. With modular cloud-storage packages, innovation in how you scale is accommodated through tier packages that anticipate business needs. The cloud is a data storage solution that is ideal for any business. It's greatest benefits lie in allowing companies to scale indefinitely.
Storage area network (SAN) - A storage area network (SAN) is an on-premise storage solution that can be accessed by servers and computers. Imagine it as an in-house data storage solution that requires the interconnection of computers and devices. It's a common option for small businesses and an example of data virtualization. It also frees up space on LANs, which are more at the forefront of data sharing. This is a suitable storage method for growing businesses.
Network asset storage (NAS) - Network Asset Storage (NAS) is essentially a low-cost file-sharing storage device. These are extremely popular among small businesses. It's similar to cloud storage, but on a smaller scale, and is referred to as in-office file storage. Email, databases, and analytics are just a few of the common business functions supported by NAS systems. A NAS can serve files using both hardware and software. NAS is a good storage solution for small businesses.
How do I choose the best storage solution for me?
So how do you decide what's best for you? First, you'll want to consider your storage needs in terms of both capacity and physical location. Afterward, you should review the storage options that best fit those needs. Storage is a highly customizable solution to purchase, so you should take some time to really consider what are your needs and don't overbuy. Finally, you need to develop a plan for implementing your chosen storage solutions.
Ultimately, any purchase decision you make should be measured by how fast you need to access data quickly and securely share information. You need a solution that can keep up with the times as technology evolves and new ways to manage data emerge in this fast-paced tech landscape. You'll also need storage that can handle large amounts of data as your company grows and scales.
