Businesses now are collecting massive amounts of data, especially as they begin to grow and gain new customers. As a business owner it’s critical to find the right way to store all that information. But what can you do to adequately protect and store all that data?
The danger here is that this huge increase of data could severely strain your company’s existing storage capacity. Here are four smart storage tips that will help your business stay ahead:
1. Reliable infrastructure
3. Storage that scales
For many SMEs, business intelligence (BI) and customer relationship management (CRM) applications are classified as mission-critical, and any downtime can mean huge trouble for your business, your customers and your bottom line.
Even if your business has the capacity required, the increased demand for data could saturate performance capabilities. Your business’s entire infrastructure needs to be able to handle intense BI and CRM workloads to avoid bottlenecks—from servers to storage to the network.
As SMEs implement increasingly sophisticated applications and online services that reach into every facet of the business, more data is collected and synthesized—making it even more important to ensure that it’s kept safe and accessible.
Data management, whether on-site or off-site, backup and disaster recovery are critical. Businesses must protect customer data to stay in business—and that your storage solution should be both secure and an asset to your business.
Storage that scales
Your storage architecture needs to have the flexibility to grow as your company grows. The ideal storage solution should also offer the necessary performance to handle both BI and CRM applications. After all, the ability to run real-time BI analysis or leverage CRM capabilities depends greatly on the data being available.
Solving storage challenges also means that your business can be more flexible, giving you more of an overall competitive advantage.
Your storage architecture should give you the power to deploy centralized storage capability as software on the hardware you choose. The result is more flexibility in hardware selection, quicker integration of new hardware technologies, and reduced cost.
