How to Future-Proof Your Data Growth

It’s no secret that data is growing by leaps and bounds. Managing data growth and dealing with the mounting quantity of information remains one of the greatest challenges for IT managers. According to Gartner Research, data is growing in enterprise storage banks at the alarming average of 40% per year!

While companies ponder ways of managing their data growth efficiently and cost-effectively, there is a silver lining: The cost of high-end enterprise SAN storage is coming down! In fact, it is now more accessible than ever to businesses of all sizes.

Until now, many companies have confronted the issue of the mounting quantity of data by ‘patching’ the problem; that is, simply adding additional storage systems to complement their current storage. This is all well and good, but ‘patching’ merely adds another level of storage management to what might already be an unruly system. Not only can this be cumbersome, but it’s also expensive; older storage systems can be costly to maintain. Beyond that, yearly software licenses and hardware maintenance contracts can be total budget-busters.

Fortunately there is a simple — and smart — solution: It involves consolidating old storage systems onto a single, enterprise-level storage device! By opting for consolidation, a business might pay a mere fraction of the costs of maintaining multiple systems. Additionally, consolidation will lower the management expense you are paying for your staff to maintain the multi-tiered system.

There are a host of benefits to opting for data consolidation. They include:

  • Ease of Management
  • Single Back-up
  • Increased Efficiency with Tiered Data
  • Scalable to meet your future needs
  • Better Performance
  • More Reliable
