Storage is a necessity for any growing or established organization; the need to provide adequate storage space for applications and the end user community is essential to maintaining a solid, reliable, and stable infrastructure, not to mention a satisfied user base. However, the issues surrounding storage and implementation of such solutions, especially with storage expansion, can bottleneck an organization’s growth, specifically when the focus is to trap storage behind individual servers.
And when an organization leverages multiple points of local storage, the ability to have consistent, secure, and usable data recovery strategies becomes increasingly complex, and drags out the window required to perform data backups. End result – reduced productivity, increased complexity, more staff, more time, and more to worry about. What’s worse is the hindrance this storage strategy poses on prolonged data retention as it applies to business continuity and disaster recovery. Sure, it could take you a day or two to restore functionality to your applications, but if it takes weeks to locate and restore all your application data, what sense is their in your strategy?
Third Octet’s storage solutions leverage proven technologies to simplify your storage and data infrastructure, specifically when an organization is considering:
- data storage consolidation
- simplifying data retention strategies (e.g. backup and restore)
- implementing/maintaining disaster recovery and business continuity
- application consolidation (e.g. e-mail and databases)
- data archiving
- network attached storage (NAS)
- virtual tape libraries
