Enterprise Data Storage & Backup Solutions
Companies have many assets including tangible equipment and human, intellectual capital. Every company asset must be protected through maintenance, mitigation of risk and plans for worst-case scenarios.
Another key component of company assets is data, which also requires thoughtful, strategic and intentional planning in order to operate efficiently and effectively and safeguard against myriad risks. Data storage and backup must be part of an organization’s overall strategy.
Enterprise Data Storage
Data storage includes any ‘media’ that is saved, held and ideally protected on a device of some sort. This often includes files or anything that is on a hard drive, network, a company asset such as a phone or in the cloud. The amount of data held by a business can be expansive.
Therefore, it is imperative to safely store it, and it is beneficial to minimize the size of data, especially where there may be duplication or old, unusable data as much as possible. There are different data storage technologies in existence that can create efficiencies and layers of protection.
Enterprise Data Backup
Even the best data storage solutions cannot always protect against internal or external risks. Rogue employees, hackers, natural disasters and other factors can put your data at risk for loss, corruption or destruction. Data must not only be stored but backed up frequently. Effective data storage and backup ensure your business assets are safe and secure and allow you to operate in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
More and more businesses are outsourcing these functions to providers who specialize in the field and stay up to date on all the latest technology advancements and risks. Even companies who have a full IT staff understand that leveraging external resources in addition to their internal functions is a necessary component of enterprise data storage.
Outsourcing storage, backup, and other functions support business continuity, provide resiliency plans for disaster recovery and achieve the redundancy required by certain industry regulations and customer requirements.
Our field of experience includes:
Looking beyond your basic storage requirements, ETS can introduce you to the latest in storage technologies for your business. These emerging technologies, such as data deduplication and hybrid storage, offer significant cost advantages over traditional data storage and recovery techniques.
Data deduplication is a technique that eliminates identical copies or blocks of data and replaces them with pointers. This process will significantly reduce the storage footprint while improving overall storage utilization. Because of deduplication, backup data is minimized and therefore efficiently replicated and retrieved over the existing networks. Overall our customers realize huge efficiency gains that dramatically reduce costs associated with hardware, software and data retention.
Storage virtualization provides virtualization at the disk level, accelerating data access by spreading read/write operations across all disk drives in the SAN so multiple requests are processed in parallel. Storage virtualization allows administrators to create high performance, highly efficient virtual volumes in just seconds without allocating drives to specific servers, without complicated capacity planning and without performance tuning. The resulting benefits of reduced management and administration will go right to your bottom line!
